    Hull Fade and UV protection

    About mid summer last year(2019) I noticed top deck was starting to fade in spots some. What product and procedure should I use? Also any products to protect from UV which I think is causing the issue.

    thx

    You can buy all the snake oil you want, but in the end the only thing that truly works is a boat cover (A garage is ok too)

    The boat should be out of direct sunlight - and use compound on the area that is getting dull . I like to wash the hull after buffing to remove compound spatter and i use an old toothbrush to get out of crevices - after washing - dry and apply some wax to seal it . Be carefull once wax and if its wet with water will be wipeout city

    3M makes good polish but must use a good wax after polishing. If the cloudy areas keep coming back will need to wet sand before polishing to remove the dead gel. Also as was said keep boat covered when not in use.
