Will VS721 BOTTOM COAT Keep My Boat Clean Without Paint?
VS721 Bottom Wax has been on the market since 1995 and is a proven performer. It will give you the same anti fouling protection as VC17 bottom paint, without the ugly painted look that you want to avoid. In addition it will seal the bottom against water penetration to protect against Osmosis without painting on a barrier coat and give you better performance. It’s perfectly clear so your bottom will look original, just a little shinier.
VS721 Bottom Wax prevents Barnacles and algae from attaching, but since it’s environment friendly it does not have toxic biocides so will not prevent slime. The movement of water over your hull from regular use of your boat will keep the slime off. If you do leave your boat stationary for a prolonged period of time, you will get slime attaching to the hull, but this can easily be wiped off with a sponge or brush. At the end of the year you will be able to just wash the bottom with some Boat Clean Plus and a sponge or pressure wash it clean. In high growth areas, even boats with bottom paint will get slime and need to be scrubbed from time to time.
We sell a lot of it in Florida. Typically Floridians will lift the boat once a month, wipe the slime off with a sponge and re-splash, or if the boat is bigger will send a diver down to wipe the bottom with a sponge. There is no need to use a scrubber like with anti-fouling paints. They re-apply a coat of VS721 Bottom Wax every 6 to 9 months to get maximum performance. VS721 Bottom Wax lasts longer in colder northern waters.
If for any reason you don’t like the performance of the VS721 Bottom Wax, it’s reversible. it can be easily stripped off and you can then sand your bottom and paint it with a barrier coat and apply anti-fouling paint. It’s much more difficult going from paint to VS721 Bottom Wax, but a lot of boat owners are doing it. They are just fed up with the scraping, sanding and painting. Some are environmentalists and don’t want to poison the water with biocides. Others use it to get higher top speed, better acceleration or reduced fuel consumption.
VS721 Bottom Wax works on sail as well as powerboats. For best performance, follow the instructions on the bottle. One bottle of VS721 Bottom Wax will protect up to 400 sq. ft. and you need 2 coats.

Is BOAT SCRUB a rubbing compound type of cleaner?
Boat Scrub with Hypexine is a unique marine cleaner that was invented primarily for the purpose of removing oxidized material from fiberglass, without causing damage to the integral gelcoat. This could be chalky gelcoat, oxidized wax, rust on steel or oxide on aluminum. It contains Hypexine, a leaching agent, to help pull color back to the surface and it will also remove deep seated stains in gelcoat, even rust, red wine and fish blood. It has surface-active ingredients to lift dirt and soil away from the surface. It also contains brighteners to enhance the brilliance of the color and it’s free rinsing, which means that there will be no residue on the surface to impede adhesion of a polish or protectant, after cleaning…
Will Boat Scrub damage Awlgrip or Interlux Paint?
Boat Scrub can scuff LP paint if you use it too aggressively and especially if it’s relatively new. A lot of boaters use it with a damp sponge or rag on older paint to remove oxidation, stains and scuffs. The runoff from the deck will not hurt the paint. Just be sure to rinse it off the hull so it doesn’t dry and leave streaks. If you find some streaks later, just rinse them off.
A good polish for LP paint is Kwik Shine. Awlgrip and Imron recommend that you do not use boat wax with Carnauba as it can cause discoloration and blistering. Kwik Shine is synthetic and does not cause these problems. If you paint is in good shape, all you need to do is wash it first with a 1:4 solution of Boat Clean Plus and water, rinse it clean and apply a couple of coats of Kwik Shine. It should keep your hull shiny and protected all year.
Can a MARINE POWER MITT help in rust stain removal?
The first product to try is Boat Scrub. Simply apply a small amount to a soft cloth and rub out the stain. If you have a lot of these marks, I recommend using a Marine Power Mitt with the Boat Scrub. It will save a lot of labor.
