Just as a reference, I did 2 boats and went through a little under half of the gallon. I don't think I used an excessive amount. If you can find the RMP, I would suggest stocking up (especially if you can get it for $4 a pop).

Brian, for what its worth, I was forever getting wheel marks on the hull insides - a pain to get at, and stubborn to clean. Then I read about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser over on The Hull Truth forum. Unbelievable stuff! Have no idea what is in it - but I have not found a hull stain yet that it can't remove. They are a few bucks each, and you are lucky if you get one to last for a Hobie - but they are amazing.

So far so good. I have had my boat stored outside for a while and there is no cracking or anything like that. The stuff doesn't go on thick enough for it to really crack.

I've been pleasantly suprised. I went to Lowes and bought up their stock of Red Max Pro for future boats.

How does this stuff last in the long haul? I have heard of it being a nightmare to remove once it starts to look funky?

Thank God I own a getaway LOL, I can't begin to count the number of hours I spent cleaning polishing waxing!!! I know its a labor of love but after 20yrs. of it, it gets to be work. All I do is take my getaway into the closest coin opp car wash and it comes out looking like the first day I picked it up from the dealer.
