My experience with Woody Wax on Whaler anti skid surfaces is it seams to work quite well. I have not used it long enough to tell you what the summer wear on it will be.My whaler is kept on a trailer and bird droppings and leaf stains led to my having to scrub anti skid every two weeks to keep from having damage to fiberglass.I scrubbed boat anti skid with Barkeepers friend and applied Woody Wax to cabin roof ,deck and cockpit anti skid .I just rinsed boat with a hose[ two weeks after i applied wax]to remove leaves etc. there are no stains from leaves on fiberglass and I do not have to scrub finish.Hope this helps anyone else with anti skid dirt problems.

I tried Woody Wax and it shined up nice, but seems to have a tendency to attract and hold bugs, at least where I live. We have an impressive hatch of flying insects at this time of year, and to a certain extent, everyone's boat gets bombed with dead bugs. But my boat is the dead bug king of the marina right now.
I'm still playing with the Woody Wax though. It seems likely that I used too much. It takes VERY little to deliver a nice shine and using more than you need doesn't help... it just makes the job harder.
I'm going to wash the boat thoroghly this weekend and after that we'll see. It may taks a couple of tries to get this right.

Over on Floridasportsman.com there are a few posts about how the guys LOVE Woody Wax, however those who have used it for a few years say it doesn't last as long as some others. It's pretty expensive stuff too.

Thanks for the tip. I just tried barkeepers friend last week and it worked great. The barkeepers friend was another great tip I got from this site.
