What wax to use ?

What kind of wax is the best to use on deck and underside ?
I've been reeding alot about the carnauba wax but the newest kinds seem to be synthetic ?? What is the best to use for best protection/result and what brand .

I know it comes down to personal preference but what are the most general brands to look at ?

I use Meguiars #16 wax.
We used to use it on the sponsons of our Atlantic but the RNLI gaves us some new 3M stuff.
I use the #16 on my car too.
Whatever you do don't use it on your deck or anywhere you sit or want to stand up as it makes the surface super slippy and water just beads off.
It'll be fine on your hull.
I get my stuff from here:
