How much Aurora product do I need to treat the topsides?


Tony Cutajar asked:

How many Aurora combo packs will I need to treat the topsides of a 55 foot motor cruiser?

For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

We have several different combo packs. I assume you are either referring to the Boat Shine Combo Pack or the Step Combo Pack. Topsides is the description of the hull from the waterline to the gunwales, however many boaters now refer to their deck as their topsides, since it is on the top.

Premium Boat Shine covers about 400 sq. ft. and Sure Step covers about 200 sq. ft. In both cases you will need enough product for 2 coats. One bottle of Boat Clean Plus and one of Boat Scrub, included in the combo pack, is sufficient for preparing the surface for one of each of the polishes. Premium Boat Shine will last a full season in either salt or fresh water, and Sure Step will last between 4 and 6 months, depending on where you are located and how aggressively you use your boat. It does not last as long in the tropics or if your boat gets heavy use, such as a charter boat. Sure Step works as well in salt as in fresh water.

Thank you for your question,

Captain Aurora
