Clay bar

Has anyone ever used a clay block on their boat? I read about it on a website by a company selling wax,and today I saw it at Wallmart in a little kit............

Is it worth getting??

Maybee Mitcher T ????????

Boatnut-Let me get this right-you want to but a clay pot on your boat? Man it must be slow-if you want to put potted plants on it.

Since no one else is taking this seriously, I will risk jumping in here. If you are talking about what I think you are they are clay bars for finishing. I have used them on a car but not on the boat. Basically, they strip off contaminants like bugs, tar etc. that might be stuck to the surface so it is really clean before you start waxing. Worked really well on the car. Of course if you are referring to something else - Never mind :D

One of my workers uses it to get scratches out of the clearcoat on his truck. He took a few out of mine just to show me how well it worked. Don't know how they would work on fiberglass.

Bnut, I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but an old rodders trick is to use old wadded up nylons or pantyhose. They will remove just about anything without leaving a mark.
Just keep your nose out of them so you can actually get something done ! :D

You mean you have to take the women out of them before you use them....
stu,just trying different things to bring back the luster to an old boat. We talked about this with Mitcher T,and some guys had some good ideas. FA!*Driver told me about some great wax by a company called Zaino Bros.,and they use a clay bar. But they are not answering my E-mails.Buffed out most of the boat yesterday,and used a wax called The Wet Look.(you know how I like things wet)Well anyway,looks good. Will see how long it holds up

I've used them on windshields before, but never fiberglass. VW sends one by request, I'm not sure where that thing went now that you mention it.....
