The surface prep seems to have worked well. The fiberglass patch job is still holding. I believe that the lack of this surface prep on the previous patch caused it to peel off the boat.

Works for me. Just follow instructions for all total boat products. Dewaxer works well just as was intended to do.

Honestly, it is hard to visually evaluate how well this product cleans a surface. While cleaning a dirty dinghy hull, it didn't /appear/ much cleaner afterwards, but some of the dirt was probably ground in pretty good (bought used). As far as prep for applying laminating product or gelcoat, everything seemed to adhere well after cleaning/prepping with this product, so I expect it did it's job! This product dries fairly quickly, but not so quickly that you can't get a good wipe down in.

We needed to clean the recently built cuddy cabin of our 20' LOA, 8' Beam, Ply on Frame, Fiberglassed backyard built boat to start priming and finishing. The first step after fairing the surfaces with our homemade fairing compound and sanding was easy using this solvent. The solvent swabbing was, after dusting, very revealing as it picked up minute surface insect residue and imperceptible by eye, greasy spots left by the insecticide used to ward them off. We highly recommend this solvent for use on any build where a very clean surface is required - especially as finishing is undertaken.
