|Kouki7||Iíve used CarPro CQuartz U.K. 3.0 on most. If I did the entire boat, I would research to see if anyone makes a more specific marine application for fiberglass and then use that, or just use car pro we will see. It takes time to apply. On a brand new truck I still had 12 hours of prep even after I told them not to wash it donít touch it just gimme.|

|Kouki7||Iíve Ceramic coated the power heads on 4 boats now. It makes water spots easy to wipe off especially on the Verado. Iíve thought about doing my boat and will maybe this winter when I have some time. Iíve personally ceramic coated 8 vehicles and wonít wax again.|

Well worth the $$$
I've had my boat out on 3 different 4 day trips and have to say its amazing. I wipe down the boat/trailer fenders when pulling out of the water each time and still don't feel like i need to wash the rig. Water just beads right off.

|JSev1||I had it professionally installed on my car and it works awesome. It's quite labor intensive as I understand it and mentioned above. As far as boats, I'm thinking you'd want to go the professional/most durable route as well, as a boat's finish would take more of a pounding from rain/water than a cars. FWIW - $400 sounds pretty reasonable if it's a good/warrantied product and install (do some research). My car cost nearly 3x that.|

There’s different prep work for ceramic. Paint or gel coat first has to be stripped of any wax or other coatings, all water spots and other imperfections are also removed . Then ceramic coating is applied in very small areas about 2 square feet at a time and hand buffed before moving to the next small section. It’s a very labor intensive process to do it correctly and if done incorrectly, it won’t turn out well and will require sand paper to remove.
There are also different levels of ceramic coatings. Some spray on, less expensive applications that last about as long as wax all the way up to “professional level” coatings that aren’t available for me and you to purchase but can only be purchased and applied by certified shops. As the grades improve they’re more difficult to apply, offer more protection and last longer.
