Huki needs a cleaning

Any suggestions on what product to use to wax/clean a Huki (gel coat). She's four years old and could use a good cleaning. Also, where to buy the product would be helpful.

West Marine has a variety of cleaning products angled toward cleaning and protecting gel coat, try west marines website www.westmarine.com

FSR Fiberglass Stain remover will get rid of yellowing and major stains - on a white hull lemons work as well as a cheaper alternative but more time consuming.

Boat polish w/ PTEF is a good polish and wax 19.99 has uv inhibitors to protect it from the sun.

I've had great luck with the On-It Pro power cleaner and Extreme Creme wax. While these are based on Marine products, their small size and reasonable outlay means less left over product, etc..

we are a retailler for this product, but you can go to their website and find a dealer close to you..

I've used both products toa recommended and had great results. Get yourself some gloves for the FSR and then enjoy your clean canoe. Both are easy to use.

You may think this is crazy but our National Canoe and Kayak teams have been using this for years.

"Brasso" - It's a metal polish. I use it on all my boats including a Pegasus. It will not damage the paint and will remove any marks or yellowing of your boat.
