Layered and the carnuba has been in the sun 2 summers..... The gel coat is in real good shape...I have read in several forums/sites that you don't want to stack wax up on gel coat....it can slightly dull and yellow some....to much info in todays world........lol ...but its true........when I fist bought I washed it with dish soap and then waxed, and up intil just recently it was slick and real shiny.......now I want to start over......I use all boat soaps and waxes from meguire's......detailer seems to stack up over time though

I never thought too much about how to get it off. I always dreaded putting it on.

Do you wax both aluminum & Glass?
The boat I got today has an 18 year old paint job, that for the most part looks ok...
Should I wax it?
& if so with what?
Is simple green strong enough the strip wax from what ever the past owners of the last 18 years might have been doing?

I use white vinegar to remove the old stuff, closely followed up with preferred soap/water mix. Might need to repeat a few times depending on build-up.
