Kieran at Rib Shop near Hamble (advertises on here) does a two part, spray cleaner then after polish. Brilliant stuff, and they'll post it.

Strange we don't normally talk about cleaning ribs until about April normally..I have the Rib Shop cleaner and preparation. I used it this year for the first time. It seems a little less toxic than the "Inflatable Boat Cleaner" that they sell at most chandlerys but no less effective so for this reason it has my vote.

I had terrible stains and residue on my boat after 2 years of neglect in the spanish sunshine. Tried most things and in the end neat traffic film remover was the answer.

Have you given our Rib Conditioner a try? we now supply a lot of the valeting firms with this instead of the 3m and they find in much better
