Grp

So I got a 2010 AVON 470 with great looking GRP after a thorough clean. Any point in putting a polish on your just keep washing it.... ? If a polish is needed surely its one of these were you dont have to use a machine to run it in ?

Polished/waxed will stay clean longer, if you care.

Be aware of the difference between a Polish and a Wax.

Polish - mildly abrasive, has no protective quality.

Wax - Purely protective and cosmetic. It sounds as if you need wax.

In your case, a Back, Crack and Sack. No balm.

You, something like this: http://www.meguiars.com/en/marine/pr...atrv-pure-wax/

It's not a recommendation, just a pointer. Some are against silicone additives...

Defiantly not up for that! Not this time of year anyway, prefer the added warmth!
