There’s a corner of Punta Gorda, Florida, that I like to call PMY Central, as a handful of our readers winter there. So what better group to do a long-term test of Interlux’s Boatcare line of cleaners, waxes, and teak treatments?

They did so under the watchful eye of Ron Stocking, whose Carver, Senior Moment, is arguably the cleanest boat in the complex. Even so, he used the All-Purpose Boat Soap and was pleased with the results. Interlux says it’s safe to use regularly, as it won’t remove wax. Paul Caminiti (pictured) used the Light Duty Rubbing Compound in conjunction with the Premium Marine Wax on his Wellcraft, Reel Estate, removing marks without scratching her and then giving her a nice shine. And Steve Frazier applied the Premium Teak Restorer to his Chris-Craft, Southern Comfort, finding the water-based formula removed dirt and buildup without harming the surrounding surfaces.

Other products in the Boatcare line include a stain remover, a UV protectant, and teak oil. —Diane M. Byrne
