I have a new 305 Conquest with non slip deck everywhere. I have polished all other areas using Collinite #885 which worked a treat.

What do I need to do to the non slip areas? I've tried using the 885 with a cloth and a brush however this uses lots of wax and takes forever. Any suggestions? Do I need to be polishing or maintaining the non slip areas at all? I don't want the rest of the gelcoat looking great in a few years and the non slip areas looking bad.

Try Starbrite's nonskid cleaner with teflon. Good stuff.

I agree about Starbrites deck cleaner, good stuff. I do not think there is any thing super great, even wood wax and another product from Re Jex or something like that, but have not tried it. I was in Wally world and saw a liquid spray wax in the RV section called Pro Tec ($6.95) I cleaned my NS and applied it to the whole NS area at first is seemed to be a dream come true, but after several cleaning it was just like the other products. I do not believe anything will make cleaning up dried, simi dried blood, bait, chum out of the NS an easy chore. I may try the Pro TEC for a while longer it did a some what ok job, I just may need to reapply(easy to do) it more often and it is also a UV protector.
