Default Best Chemicals to use on your boat

I have been told and have read that the following are the best 5 chemicals or mistures to have around. I forget what each one is good for. Does anybody know and would anybody care to agree or disagree? Of course, wax is probably #6 after these chemicals are used to clean.

Vinegar and Water
Degreaser
Acetone
Hull Cleaner
Toilet Bowl Cleaner

I use Vinegar and water to remove water spots and Sno Bowl toilet bowl cleaner to remove the yellow stains from the hull.

I have used the Sea bright hull cleaner but Sno Bowl does the same job and costs alot less.

And Yes, Wax is a must after using hull cleaner or Sno Bowl.

It's not my cup of tea but I know a few people that smoke a lot of pot on their boat. They seem to enjoy it.

To get off really stubborn hard water spots, I use a mixture of 2 cups of Simple Green and one cup of white vinegar.

Any suggestions on wax? Also, how important is it to compound? How is that done?
