Mailport: September 2012

Miracle Cloth Resource

I just wanted to let you know that the Miracle Cloth, PS’s Best Choice Metal Polish (PS, March 2007 and February 2009), is available from a source other than West Marine. We’ve been buying it (and loving it) from West for years, but we’ve had problems finding it lately.

It’s actually made by CAA Enterprises (www.caaenterprises.com). They sell direct, and if you buy 12, they are less than $3 each! That’s versus $13 or $14 each from West Marine. (Just one is $6, delivered.) We have tested products from both places, side-by-side, and they appear identical.

Jack, I am on City Island, also. I have gone crazy for years, especially with a constsnt layer of brine shrimp and slime. This year I took Practical Sailor's advise and changed to COPPER SHIELD SCX(TM) - Multi-Season Boosted Ablative - 45% Copper by Blue Water Paints. I barely have to clean at the water line, and the keel is clean from May till September. The only downside is that you have to order it on-line, even though it is manufactured in NJ. I can't recommend it any highly.
