Thanks guys

Is it the effect on the gelcoat that worries you ie its a sealer rather than a polish?. What does the PTEF do to the gelcoat if you need to repair?. I normally use Auto Glym polish, is this ok or is it best to use product from Rib Shop. It is just last year I had a problem with growth on the hull on the mooring and am desperate not to antifoul! so trying to make it easy to clean.

PTFE is an absolute sod to get off and no repairs will stick if it's been used unless it's removed. It's a 'one wipe, throw the wipe away' job while using industrial cleaning wipes. Basically like trying to remove silicone polish from anything.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
