Slippery Stuff

When I raced Lasers as a kid, our team used to apply liquid dish detergent to our hulls to make them faster. This worked great for a little while before the soap washed off (usually measured in boatlengths from the dock). Team McLube’s Hullkote, a high-performance speed polish, takes this same concept many steps forward, delivering an ultra-smooth, bonded finish, when applied correctly. Hullkote can be applied to “anything that shines” and delivers UV protection. Best yet, Hullkote uses an environmentally-friendly citrus base and doesn’t use petroleum distillates. $29.95 Team McLube, 800-262-5823, www.mclubemarine.com
