look out for posts and pictures from bilge rat coming soon
I'd like to back up what Mike at the polishing company has stated here, any of you that know me will know i'm probably the most sceptical person on the planet when it comes to these so called "miricle" cleaning products and for a long time i was an avid fan of the cream cleaner and nylon pads, my tubes had sun faded from at least 10 years of living outdoors with no care and attention, i had previously scrubbed the tubes back to some sort of colour with the cheap cream cleaner and resided myself to the fact that this was the best result i'd ever get until i tried the 303
I spent Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday working on my front tubes and cant believe the results, not only has the 303 restored the faded colour but its lifted out the grim and dirt gathered over the last 15 years of the boats life, then just to add i squirted on the 303 protectant that i'd also bought from Mike and it seemed to darken the colour even more, its now left the tubes with that slightly dull waxy feel you get from new tubes and they look increadable, i did try taking some before and after pics but the camera went wrong and i wasn't able to get before photos, however i did take some of the bow after and i've attached it here, i will be completing the stern this weekend and will make sure i take some close up pics to post before and after, the bow section in my opinion was the worst and had been neglected on my previous attempts at cleaning due to the position and awkward positon needed to get any rubbing pressure on the area.
I wont lie and say it was easy as it wasn't it still took time and paitence and i'm still developing my technique using the stuff, but at the moment i'm very pleased with the results, the 303 is safe to use on your hands and is non abrasive.
If i were you and i were in any doubt i'd take up Mikes kind offer of a free sample and give it a go yourself, you may just be supprised by the results you can obtain, after all if i can make a 15 year old tube look like new image what you could achieve with just grubby tubes.
Have a look at the website
I'd also like to thank Mike too for all his advise and tips over the last few days.
