Question Best Polish

Anyone recommend which polish I should be using on my fibreglass hull please??

I take it, I put some of the polish on the polisher or do I rub that on the boat first then use the polisher???

Just bought a 18v cordless sander/polisher.

I vagaly remember someone saying some polishes keep the boat shiny for longer.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Hope you got a few extra batteries!
3m fastcut if it needs a deep cut or fine if its not too bad just dull. Finish with a uv wax/ sealer

Aqua buff 2000, it's a cutting compound and polish, easy to use with superb finish!

Gelcoat Protection

Carnauba wax on boats don't last as long as a Gelcoat surface sealant.

So you best use this then, but then I would say that.
