    Aluminum polish / cleaner

    Stay away from steel wool you will regret ever using it on a boat. I use colinites and a damp cloth first. Once it dries wipe off the residue. Get a new rag damp with either woods wax or Rupp Alumagaurd and use peek polish. Leave a great finish that last 2-3 months.
