I recently used PoliGlow on the blue decks of my '82 H14, to include the non-skid, and had fantastic results. Included in the PoliGlow kit is a cleaner that works pretty well. Once clean, PoliGlow wipes on easily with the applicator that they provide. You just wipe on a thin coat, absolutely no buffing, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then wipe on another coat. It takes about two minutes to wipe down a 14 hull. You have to put on 7 coats, per the instructions, but it's easy.
I took my boat to Mid-Americas and most folks thought I had painted the decks. It worked great on the non-skid. It made it a little slick, but on the 14, as with the 16, the non-skid doesn't see much action if any. When I'm trapping my feet are either on the side rails or a foot is on some non-skid tape on the hull behind the aft pylon - don't wipe Poliglow over the non-skid tape if you've put it on your boat. But the non-skid part of the deck looked great! Almost like new. It restored some of the fading and put a great shine on the decks, even the non-skid. However, if you are a racer, I would only apply Poliglow to the deck. I would be concerned that if you put it on the hull below the decks, although it feels and looks slick, it's might slow you down a bit as would a soft automotive wax. I only put it on my decks. I won't hesitate to apply another coat of PoliGlow next year.
Do you have any before and after pics? With the condition of my hulls, having to use 320 sandpaper and a DA sander to get down to the original paint color i cant see how this would work for me.
I understand that poliglow would make the hulls shine but i dont want the milky white to shine i want the original powder blu to shine
