The old boat wax needs to be stripped first so that Blue Water Hull Polish can adhere to and protect your hull, otherwise the Blue Water Hull Polish will wind up protecting your old boat wax residue, which is ablative and will come off leaving your hull unprotected.
Old boat wax can easily be stripped from Gelcoat with Boat Scrub and from painted surfaces with Boat Clean Plus or Kwik Shine if the paint is oxidized.
Thanks for your question.
