    Wax for sides and bottom of hull

    What wax are you using for your boat. I'm using Mcguire's cleaning wax and when I pull the boat out of the water after one day (trailered) from the water line down looks yellowed and doesn't bead the water. Salt water boater on the Great South Bay, Long Island.

    The boat was painted before I bought it, but I think they only painted deck and sides, bottom looks like original gel.
