What is “paint correction” on a boat?


Paint correction is the process of removing minor to heavy scratches (if you can physically feel it, it might require repairing) and other defects like holograms, buffing swirls, and sanding marks to result in a perfect mirror finish!

How often should a boat be waxed?


If your boat is kept outside in the elements during the boating season, then we recommend a waxing be completed every 4-6 months to keep it in immaculate shape year round!

What soap should be used to maintain the wax/sealant?


We recommend any PH neutral soap to to wash your boat/car after it has been waxed, most other soaps like dawn WILL strip the wax and any sealants off, leaving the surface unprotected.
