Another way of dealing with water stains if you catch them early enough is to spray them with a solution of vinegar and water. If I'm not mistaken Alan B taught me that trick.

Sharkhide that's it. I couldn't remember the name but have had heard of it. I hear water stains are a problem on high polished boats. I see water stains on the Hawk but they come off with a quick detail spray. Or a couple swirls of wax.

I used everbrights crystal clear coating on my Hawk. It was made to bring back the color from the anodizing.
Might be different than the stuff you are talking about.
Personally I was not a big fan of the self leveling properties. I could not get it to lay down evenly. I brushed it on, and I rolled and tipped it on.

If you got close to the hull you could see runs, where you thought you had a thin coat on. I would try to tip off the runs and it would just flatten the run and you could still see it, I got frustrated quick. But not enough that I did put another coat on last fall....

My next boat will not see any evercoat.

I am not to sure there is a real solution to keeping the shin on bare aluminum except good old elbow grease.
I think it's like a fiberglass boat, wax and or compound maintenance is required to keep your boat looking the best.

I looked into it a few weeks ago after seeing it advertised. It gets positive reviews on Amazon but a four-ounce bottle is $25.

Has anyone ever used Everbrights products named Protectoclear on their FC polished aluminum? Any comments or suggestions appreciated!
