    keeping rxt x260 clean

    Well 5 hrs on the new machine and loving it. I can't believe how quickly this machine turns and accelerates.

    Now. How do I keep it clean. Likely covered elsewhere, however tips on water spots and general cleaning appreciated.

    same stuff for a vehicle. although 303 aerospace is a good for everything cleaner on the ski.

    I usually spray detail mine and I waxed it at the beginning of the season when new

    Lucas Oil makes a spray speed wax. Been using it on both my ski and truck over the past year and have been very happy with the results.

    1/2 water + 1/2 vinegar will remove ALL water spots and is safe to use on the machine no problem. Meguiar's Boat/RV polish no. 45 does wonders for fine scratches.

    As for hard water spots between waxes - 50/50 white vinegar/distilled water. Takes the spots right off and does NOT affect the wax finish - well, not the 3M anyway. I don't use, so I dont know about the others...

    I have a GTI 130 and after just 11 hours we've got a few spots i'm having trouble cleaning. The first outing left the "Sea-Doo" sticker on the hull with a dirty black look on it. We tried cleaning it with just a rag and water, then tried Simple Green and Goof off but nothing got it off. We also noticed the sunblock we wear leaves dirty spots around the foot holes.

    Will waxing fix all of this? Any suggestions on how to remove it before giving it a wax?
