Formula Restores Lustrous Shine To Metals And More
Metal exposed to the elements quickly tarnishes, rusts or collects limescale, losing its lustrous shine. With Peek Polish from Sudbury, it’s quick and easy to bring new life to stainless steel, chrome, brass, bronze and other boat and RV surfaces. Its four-in-one action cleans, polishes, restores and protects 38 different solid materials.
Odor-free, non-toxic and non-flammable, the highly-effective formula works on all metals, fiberglass, glass, plastics, isinglass and painted surfaces. While powerful enough to remove boat and RV oxidation and exhaust bluing, it can also delicately clean fine jewelry.
Using concentrated Peek Polish is simple. Available in a paste or liquid, it’s applied sparingly with a damp or dry cloth and then polished. For ornate surfaces, it can be worked in with a small brush. Once the finish is restored, it reduces tarnishing for up to three months. Peek Polish is available in 1.6 oz. and 3.9 oz. tubes and 8.4 oz. and 39.3 oz. cans of paste, and an 8.4 oz. liquid container. Sudbury is the exclusive Peek Polish distributor in North America, with retail prices starting at $12.
Bucket Is Boat Detailing Station In Disguise
Few boat accessories are as useful as the One Bucket System from Shurhold. As a detailing station, it’s unrivaled for its ingenuity and transforms the washing experience. And whether stored in a dock box, garage or below decks, it holds a wide range of soaps, sprays and tools all in one convenient place.
Made in the USA, the basic One Bucket System starts with Shurhold’s black or white five-gallon World’s Best Rope Handle Bucket. Instead of a rust-prone wire hoop that’s difficult to grasp and can scratch fine finishes, it features a soft .75-inch braided rope. Constructed from heavy-duty plastic that’s thicker than a standard pail, the bucket is strong enough to stand on using the combination Bucket Lid/Padded Seat.

Inside the World’s Best Rope Handle Bucket are a series of removable inserts. The Bucket Grate sits on the bottom where dirt drops out of the soapy water through integrated baffling as a brush or wash mitt is scrubbed against it. Two integrated 3 oz. measuring cups make it simple to achieve the recommended cleaning product ratio and twin finger holes make it a snap to remove.
On top of the grate is the Bucket Caddy. Two compartments store bottles, spray jars and small tools. The perforated bottom ensures water drains while a handle makes it easy to move around while working.
Shurhold offers a step up with its Deluxe One Bucket System, which adds the Bucket Base. This sturdy non-skid, non-marking ring minimizes sliding and tipping when long brushes are dipped into the bucket and scrubbed against the grate.
It includes the World’s Best Rope Handle Bucket with Bucket Lid/Padded Seat, Bottom Grate, Bucket Caddy and Bucket Base, then adds a 32 oz. bottle of Shurhold Brite Wash, 16 oz. container of Pro Polish Wax, 32 oz. SMC Cleaner, 16 oz. spray bottle of Serious Shine and a 22 oz. can of Buff Magic Compound.
The Shurhold One Bucket System costs $54.98; the Deluxe version, $74.98; and the Ultimate model, $159.98. Individual items are also available separately.
Kids Don’t Know USCG Regs, But They’ll Wear The PFD
When an open boat is underway, the U.S. Coast Guard requires anyone under 13 years of age wear a lifejacket. The trouble tends to be getting children to comply with the regulation. With USCG-approved Type III Kid Vests from Bombora, it’s easy to protect youngsters whether they’re at the beach or on a towable. Offered in two sizes and designed for maximum comfort, the PFDs are available in fun color combinations that kids will be excited to wear.
The Bombora Kid Vest is covered in 200d and 300d polyester fabric that’s soft to the touch and makes slipping into it effortless. Parents appreciate the heavy-duty zipper and twin belts with Delrin buckles that make adjustment fast and easy. A recovery loop is sewn onto the back to assist them out of the water.
Designed for active use, the generous neck and armholes are oversized for swimming and playing. Layers of soft, lightweight EPE foam provide 11 lbs. of flotation and allow the Kid Vest to contour to the body without the bulk of a traditional PFD.
The Child size has an adjustable leg strap for added safety and is for youngsters 30-50 lbs. with 20- to 25-inch chest sizes. The Youth model fits kids 50-90 lbs. with 26- 30-inch chest sizes. Bombora Kid Vests are available in blue, yellow and red Sunrise or white, blue and turquoise Tidal; they cost $55.
