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.

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!!!

Frenzy.
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.
