    Jim, I would have thought that with your military background you would have known you cant polish a marine :)

    We always used it on our boats, never used it on the MH though.

    I have tried it on our boats previously but, in my opinion to be honest there are much better products.

    On our current boat which is dark blue, I now use Meguires ultimate compound followed by Meguires 26 Hi tech yellow paste wax.
    Lasts very well in the marine environment. I recently put a coat of 26 Hi tech on the grp bonnet of the Hymer it gives a fantastic shine. I am also a fan of Collonite which is very durable on cars but not so good on boats.

    I always used Starbright's products on my yacht and was pleased with the results; Black streak remover was brilliant. But of course if you think Motor-Home products get dearer than some, Marine products take the Pee for being extra dear.

    Still if I was James Brown, a mere Bagatelle ............ :getmecoat:

    It could be absolutely brilliant ! It could be worth double the money !

    Or it could be just another re branded re packaged polish with its "kings new clothes" price tag..

    Buy me a bottle and I will test and review it ?? :D:D:D

    I have tried it and it's no better than Meguiars Oxidation remover which is much cheaper. But please remember it's a polish so will need a coat of wax as well otherwise your wasting your time and money
