Products recommended to seriously clean my 27 ft. cruiser boat?

Yngvar Hvistendahl, M.D. asked:

My 27 foot cabin cruiser has been in the San Francisco bay for 2 yrs and will need a serious cleaning. I have bottom paint on her that needs to be refreshed. The boat will be out of the water on a hydro-hoist in the future. Please recommend the best products for me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:

We recommend to start by removing the chalk, oxidation, stains and scuffs from the fiberglass boat with Boat Scrub. If the fiberglass is dull and faded, buff it back to a shine with EZ BUFF buffing cream. Restoring chalky, faded gel coat on your fiberglass boats is EZ as 1, 2, 3 with the new EZ Buff boat detailing system. EZ BUFF is Tough on Oxidation but Easy on gel coat. Compared to traditional rubbing compounds that contain aggressive grits that scratch deeply into your gel coat and then require finer and finer grades to remove the scratching, thereby removing excessive amounts of your thin gel coat, EZ BUFF is designed to aggressively remove the oxidation, with minimal damage to the integral gel coat. Polishes the surface to a mirror finish, all in one step. EZ BUFF buffing cream is a New Eco Friendly Formula,water based and Biodegradable. It’s environment, human and boat friendly. There are no Bad solvent odors and no coarse grit to scratch you gel coat. Working time with EZ BUFF can be extended even further with EZ BUFF EXTENDER and you get greater coverage, so it’s much less expensive than using rubbing compounds. We recommend using EZ BUFF EXTENDER™ to extend working time and to lubricate the surface. This reduces the chance of swirl marks. The finished surface has a long lasting gloss and surface conditioning. Now it’s ready for protection with long lasting PREMIUM BOAT SHINE™. It’s easy to apply, all synthetic and Carnauba wax free.Protect all the vertical surfaces with Premium Boat Shine. See the Full Answer

Will Kwik Shine provide superior protection if used weekly?

Bret Arnal asked:

Is there any value in using Kwik Shine on a weekly basis (after a weekend of using the boat at the lake) on a metal-flake boat that has already been cleaned and protected with Boat Clean Plus, Boat Scrub, and Premium Boat Shine? What I mean is the following: Will the Kwik Shine add better protection and shine to the finish or is this simply not necessary?

Why is your Alumabrite better than other products?

Bill Kocur asked:

I recently purchased a 22 ft Crest pontoon boat that only came out of the lake for it’s annual maintenance. The pontoon’s had some light algae, which I pressured cleaned, Now to find a product that is easy to use and will remove the oxidation, waterline scum, etc. I have researched other products, most seem to have an acid that turns the toons white. I’m looking for a product that will clean and hopefully make the toons have a clean and shiny appearance. I’m not sure if I will polish them out to a new, almost mirror shine, lots of work!, Please tell me why your AlumaBrite is better than other products. How much would I need for my 22ft’ boat? Where can I buy in the states? I’m in Sarasota, Florida.
