    So I've tried meguries flagship wax it last for a little while . But I'm looking for something that will last a long time . . Boat it a 21 ft , saltwater use . Would I be better off with a liquid pure carnauba wax from meguries ? Westmarine has there own brand . A lot of people say they like it . How log will it last is the question . Will paste wax or liquid matter ? I'm not to worried about the shine. I don't mind the white being a little dull . It helps with my sensitive eyes . I just want a long lasting wax that will help keep off the fish blood and guts ..

    Carnuba waxs are almost worthless in a marine environment.

    I NEVER wax boats, but it seems Colonite gets good reviews.

    I’ve had good success with the 3m marine ultra wax. I always use a hard wax 2x a year, and when I use my foam cannon to wash my boat down after I use it, I always add a squirt of 3m marine wax as well. Keeps her looking good!

    Always wondered about the 3m stuff. Can it be used in direct sun . I don't have a cover to work under .. also can a past wax be used on a buffer ? Guess it would work
