It's a little early to debate waxes and soaps, but I took three pix of my boat after it had been in the water for 6 months with no exterior maintenance to the gel coat other than a weekly wash with water containing a shot glass of Woody Wax Ultra Pine boat soap. The boat was polished with 3M finesse and waxed with Flagship before launch in April. I think it looks pretty good since it has not yet been detailed for the 2019 season. Pix were taken last week. I plan on doing the same routine next year. Boat soap brand is almost more important than the wax we use. Woody clearly removes dirt without removing wax.
