Blue bottle. I think the only difference is the amount of product. 16 oz blue bottle has lasted me 2 years. That is doing my boat twice so far, 4 cars (3 twice). I just started on my second bottle and reapplied to my truck.There seems two be two types one in a blue bottle and another with a black and white checker board appearance that says corrosion protection that also comes in a gallon. Which do you use for the boat?
They have both in 16 oz but only the checkered in a gallon. But I’ll get the blue since it sounds like I only need the little one. Thanks.Blue bottle.

It's on! Goes on easy, and comes off easy. Looks great!!! Hope it lasts. Time will tell...Just ordered a 12 oz bottle of rejeX from amazon with $4 shipping for next day delivery. Wasn't happy with the Turtle carnaubu cleaner wax paste (even applied 2x). Hope this stuff last longer.
It is slick, I do the bottom of the boat too. I do it on the trailer so no issues like that. It is awesome to not have to clean the boat every use. My diesel trucks are in and out of landfills all day long. We wash once a week and barely have to use a brush to get the dirt and crap off. Oh and those paccar mx-13 motors picked 1-2 mpgRejex WARNING!!! It works. It works too well in some ways. I decided to do the bottom of the hull in rejex (a creeper helps a lot here) and stay with meguiars flagship for the sides. I went to put the boat on my older style floating side tie lift which requires the bow be raised first. Darn good thing I was in the boat doing that with a remote as it slid right off the lift headed for another dock. Luckily I was able to use that dock and my feet to stop it before any impact and then get the engines started right away so no damage but it was hairy.
I have rigged some dock lines from the lift to the stern tie downs with some stainless quick clips which worked perfectly for using the lift going fowards.
I imagine this could be an issue with other lifts and trailering as well so be careful folks. Rejex is slicker than anything I have ever used on the boat. I did wipe down the bottom of the hull with tub and tile cleaner first so it was best prepared to receive the rejex and that really good prep may have contributed. I followed the rejex directions to a T and even applied close to dusk in dry weather. It was not all that easy to get off after the full hazing period as directed. Perhaps the tub and tile cleaner prep contribued to that as well.
Tagging @swatski since I know he has a lift and was considering trying this. Please tag others you may know.
love the GT-R in the background btwSo I ended up trying out Rejex due to this thread. Bought two bottles from Amazon for my 242 and I believe I almost used half of one of those bottles for the entire boat. I followed the instructions and allowed it to cure for 48 hours before taking it to the water. The boat looks great, slick as could be. It went on easy and came off easy. Thanks for the recommendation and pictures attached.
The car wash might not strip any wax if they put any on at the factory. I use dawn on the gelcoat only and do not get it on the rubber or vinyl of the boat.I have a 2019 Scarab 195, built in late February. I wonder when Rejex is ok put on with such a new paint job? My vehicle has a recent repair and was suggested to not wax for 6 weeks, which is the reason I bring up the question. I would like to get a good protectant on before i have to apply any cleaner first to the boat before the Rejex. The boat has been on the water 3 times so far. I'm thinking just use my Meguiars Car wash and then apply Rejex and let it sit a couple of days. The water has a lot of limestone in it here in central TX and have been wiping it down when pulling it out of the water to prevent those limestone spots. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Dawn dish washing liquid is meant to cut grease and cleans exceptionally well however it's not meant for surfaces where there is wax (cars, boats, motorcycles, etc.) It'll end up removing any wax you have on that item. Ask me how I know this. Better to buy product meant to clean that product where it'll protect the wax.The car wash might not strip any wax if they put any on at the factory.

Exactly, you need to remove the wax, before you apply rejex. You can wax on top of rejex. It will not properly seal with wax under it.Dawn dish washing liquid is meant to cut grease and cleans exceptionally well however it's not meant for surfaces where there is wax (cars, boats, motorcycles, etc.) It'll end up removing any wax you have on that item.
