Choose The Right Wax For Your Boat
Picking the right wax can be confusing. Just looking down the wax and care aisle at a marine store and seeing all the choices is overwhelming. The next time boaters find themselves in a sea of waxes, they can just ask for a bottle of Shurhold’s Pro Polish.
Pro Polish is scientifically formulated to protect a boat from the harsh effects of the sun, salt water and environmental fallout. It repels water and provides a deep high gloss shine, while protecting surfaces from the harsh effects of the sun with UV inhibitors.
Better than an old-fashioned wax, Pro Polish is a polymer-based formula with cosmetic-grade ingredients and contains no fillers or talc. A 16 oz. bottle costs $22.98.

Squirt Alarm Clock Powered By Water
Mark Bedol, designer of the Bedol Water Clock, has released the Squirt Alarm Bedol Water Clock.
Featuring an alarm function, this eco-friendly, battery-free timepiece is powered by water. Inside of the semi-transparent water reservoir are proprietary metallic plates that allow ions in the water to be turned into current, which powers the clock and alarm. Just fill the clock with water and it will never need batteries or electricity.
The clock has a contemporary water drop design and can easily be packed in a travel bag.
With a suggested price of $26, the alarm clock is available in five colors: blueberry blue, kiwi green, tangerine orange, plum purple and smoke gray.
