    There is a wax called PRESTA "fast wax" they sell it at paint stores, i'm sure you can go online and find a dealer. It is the easiest wax to use, comes off like your drying the car, no effort. Lasts as long as anythin out there. It's also only about $10. I use it on Everything from the lambo to the bike to all the boats. I think it's better then mcguires, pinicle or any other high end polish!!!

    I've used all types of wax on my boats. A while back I read an article about marine wax and how it's formulated for gel coats & water / sun use. I then tried Meguiers marine wax and it was the best I've ever used. It cost a little more but even after several washed with soap, the water still beaded up. Go with a marine wax for boat use.

    Closer than you might think..........
    Check the link. It will give you some more insight on Boat care and what works best.
    I also have a lot of feedback from here on the board and all will agree that Leverage is the best Polish!!!

    Boat Wax, 1 coat per year???

    Best I've used so far. Easy to apply, Easy to remove.

    Oops, not a store bought wax.

    Mequires is very good and I have also had excellent luck with RejeX. You can find RejeX at any True Value hardware store.
