Have you had it wet yet? The normal stuff appears ok when it's dry, then turns into a baby oil slick as soon as it gets any water on it. I thought Ribcraft used 303 but I could be wrong. I've just had a look on their website & in fact Armour All DOESN'T contain petroleum distillate, so I was wrong on that point, it does however contain silicone which would account for the slipperiness. Silicone could also make future glued repairs a problem.

No not slippy even when wet. I don't put loads on anyway and rub it in till it is all gone. Not sure if the semi matt stuff is any different to the shiny but will check out Armor alls website.

Just read through this, nice work!
Does anyone know of any polish which is still slippery when wet? Would be good for the underside of a thundercat

Racing boats use something, surfers, skiers etc trouble is if you get a puncture I suppose it might give problems
