MGA

The polymarine stuff is ok however Revival is the best. Sean at MGA Rochdale does a mailorder service. 01706 379669. £13.00 a litre. Mention Graeme with the Medline if you call.

Well Done

But remember what my old mum used to say - "you get what you pay for". The Revival stuff may be expensive but, oh boy it's good. Happy rubbing...

Of all the products I have tried RIB SHINE & POLISH I feel is the best, it does take a bit of work but the end result is excellent, I use it once a year and all you have to do after application is a simpy wash with soapy water. I give it 10 out of 10. Can be purchase from VIking Lifesaving Equipment.........good luck

Tel: +44-(0)1489 581715

Cheapo Method

I just cleaned my tubes with Tesco Cheapo Cream Cleaner (JIF) and the soft part of the double sided pan cleaners and that came up like new.

It wasn't hard work but it made a mess of my clothes.

Cost less than 30p and didn't cause any damage.


Give it a try.
