This stuff goes on easy with just a wipe and no white residue. Just spray and wipe. Did the whole boat in ten mins. I was sceptical about how it would last because of how easy it was to apply. Well after the boat being in the lake all night and then driving in the rain for 5mi it was dirty. Just took a towel and wiped it down and it looks just like I just waxed it. Not sure how long the wax will last but it is better than anything I have ever used in the past.
