Meguiars carnauba wax. Makes the tubes very slippy but makes salt water bead off, protects from sun, grease, oil etc and shines them up beautifully. It was a tip given to us by rnli as that was what they used.

Thanks Barrowboy..

You can take a look here:
Rib tube conditioner - restore colour - protect

The website should let you order up to 2 of these to be shipped at the lower rate. If you have any problems just give me a shout.
