Decided to buy!

Have decided to purchase Feldten Marine Gelcoat Sealer (Nano Extract Gelcoat Sealer) as it reads very well on reviews etc but have noticed that it is for gelcoat above the water line! has anybody used this polish/sealer? or could any body advise weather it would be ok to use on the whole of the hull?. I usally just polish the hull with a good car polish......any thoughts or advise before I polish my boat at the week end? thanks guys.Easy to find info on internet if you need to have a look.

I translated it for us Southern Jessies...


I read the reviews on the Feldten marine products.I have to say, it sounds a little too wonderful. I'd do more research before using it, just in case it's another PTFE based polish which makes it a bugger to do any ding or scratch repairs.

Phil, on a serious note I take it the boat is kept on a drive (whatever) during its out of the water days so and its just my opinion a polish of the complete hull with Feldten Marine Gelcoat Sealeris going to accomplish,what? why change a tried and tested method? I have not tried Feldten but to be honest a good going over with a car wax works for me. Just my 2ps worth. Regards Jim

I was trying to, but in a subtle way with a hint of humour i.e. I can't see the point, what are you hoping to gain? Save your money for fuel, spend your polishing time on the water
