Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen

I was wondering if any0ne could advise me on a product that might help make the rain run off the plastic windows of my boat, which is a Warrior 175 Export? I have tried Rain X Anti Fog but that didn't seem to work.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

RainX anti fog is for the insides of windscreens. For outside use you need RainX rain repellant (I use this on the rear window of my car - the manufacturer didn't see fit to supply a rear wiper!) for your Warrior RainX plastic would probably be the best product.

Thanks - I'll try that - more concerned about sea spray than rain though - the breeze is always there from the forward motion of the boat.

I was thinking the same. Once I get within a few hundred metres of the chain ferry my windows are covered in spray and I can't see out so it's stand up or die. Rain isn't such a problem really as it tends to fall down more naturally.

I received replies from two companies, AngelwaxH20GO and FUSSO, and both say their products are suitable for glass windows. I might try one or the other. FUSSO did say that due to the chemical bond it doesn't last as long on plastic.

As Brian said, warrior windows are not normally glass Rain X will damage the plastic and your windows will be permanently damaged. They say a cut potato rubbed over the screen works well, not tried myself but a number have mentioned it, cheap too.

That's contrary to what Phil at Warrior said. Potato sounds fun though and definitely cheaper....

Back in my misspent yoof, we always used to polish our helmet visors with neat washing up liquid. It doesn't repel water but stops it forming droplets and just films across so you can still see through clearly.
A bit of a daily chore to re-apply but it works well.

I've always used "Turtle Wax Professional". It works a treat.
Dare I say that any of the modern "easy on/off" waxes should work.
