Hi new to the fourm and a new boat owner here. I was wondering if anyone could lead me into the right direction on which type of cleaner and or protective spary I shuould use on my achilles boat after being in the water. Its made out of hypalone material. I was told to try meguires which has a uv protection to it. Any advise is welcome. Thanks

I use Meguires as recommended by a bloke who makes and repairs RIBs, does't stay on long though before it needs re doing.

Exactly what Meguiar's products did you use?

Was it the Gel Wash?

No, you want carnauba wax, not gel. It's in a tin.

Carnauba wax to clean? I don't think that would work too well. What do you use to clean? Interesting to read that some of you use Meguiar's because I work for Meguiar's Australia. Interested to hear how many of you use Meguiar's . Cheers.

Indeed, not to clean, but it protects the toobs from sun and makes them shine.

To clean M501 bostick cleaner/thinner

RIBase
I find Aerospace Protectant 303 works a treat.

I never thought of using the Megs stuff, Ive got pretty much everything they do for detailing cars.

Wash down with fresh water after every trip and then an annual or biannual clean with RIB revive and a cover to keep the UV's off when I'm not using her is all I need to keep her tip top.

Same here, but instead of RIB revive for me it is a wipe down with a chamois
