When: October 13-16, 2014
Where: Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, MN

IFAI Expo

It is that time of year again, time for the IFAI Expo.  This year’s event will be held in Minneapolis, MN and Randy will be in attendance, representing Scalise Marine and Strataglass.  Please stop by and say, “Hello”.

Strataglass has been working on a new and exiting product, actually introduced at the IFAI Expo in Orlando, last year, but now they are ready to take it Main Stream!  What is this product, you might ask?  It is a thinner version of their Crystal Clear 20/20 pressed vinyl sheet and targeted to the architectural community.   They named it CountryView.

CountryView is .020 mil thick and comes in the standard Strataglass size, 54″ x 110″ sheets (53.5″ x 109″ usable).  It is to be used in roll up sunscreens for homes and restaurant applications.

Also to be showcased at our booth, the new IMAR Clear Vinyl Clean and Protect for use on CountryView.  We are excited about these and will be glad to answer any questions.

Strataglass Care and Maintenance Video w/ Randy Bouffler

Featuring: yours truly.

To combat a lot of mis-information out there and to help new owners of Strataglass and Crystal Clear 20/20 learn the proper way of caring for their new windows, Stratglass has commissioned the above video.  Contrary to claims by many cleaners, Strataglass only recommends the IMAR Yacht Detailing Products, specifically the IMAR Strataglass Care products (IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner and IMAR Strataglass Protective Polish) to care for and properly maintain their products.

Not to say the some of the other products will not work but IMAR is the ONLY approved and recommended treatment from the factory.  Use of anything else may result in voiding your factory warranty.

Golfers, Looking For a Bargain?

Golf Trader has, probably, the largest selection of pre-enjoyed clubs in South Florida.  With the volume of new clubs we sell, our Trade-In inventory is in a constant state of flux.  You never know what gem you might find on our shelves.  Looking for a particular club that is no longer available, give us a shot, we may have it on the shelf.

Looking for a real bargain?  Check out our Used Drivers collection.  Many of our listings are never sold older models marked down to their lowest price point.  I have been busy for the last two weeks adding inventory to these listings, many drivers prices as low as $75.  By the end of the week I should have all of the Used and Closeout Drivers listed and will be moving on to the Fairway Woods.

The Golf Trader Club Vault – you never know what treasures you might find.

SOMEONE TO DO IT MARINE CREAM CLEANER

Someone To Do It Cream Cleaner logo

As a retailer of boat maintenance supplies, we receive a lot of requests to sample and carry new products.  Often times these samples sit on a shelf for a while before we get around to them.  Such is the case for Someone To Do It Cream Cleaner.

We were provided with a full size bottle (32 ounces) for testing and review….and sat on it.  I know now that this was a mistake.  One day while cleaning the shower at home, I got tired of the Tilex / cleanser routine to clean each week, Tilex one week then cleanser the next…repeat.  The fumes from the Tilex are killer on the lungs, especially in a closed bathroom setting, and you can only concentrate on the mildew or the soap scum because each takes its own cleaner and DO NOT mix these cleaners or it can kill you.  When looking at the shelf for an alternative, I saw the neglected bottle of Something To Do It (recently renamed to Someone To Do It Cream Cleaner), such a silly name, but what the heck, I gave it a try.  I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the results!  This was a gem. lost in the clutter of the cleaning cabinet.  This stuff cut straight through the soap residue and my grout has never been whiter.  Impressive but still not enough to invest in a no-name cleaner without a market, until….

A friend asked for my advice as my reputation for trying new and alternate ways of cleaning is well known in our circle.  She has glass shower doors and no matter what she uses, cleaning them is a major pain and they don’t really come clean.  I reluctantly pulled out my little secret bottle and told her to give it a whirl but not to use it all up and I wanted it back.  At this point, I had no recollection of where the bottle came from or how to get more, I had to make my bottle last as long as possible.

Wouldn’t you know it, the stuff worked for her too.  In fact, she had never found anything that worked so well and so easily.  This friend is a bit on the “Strong Personality” side and convinced me to search for the source of Something To Do It and get her some.  This is exactly what I did, our first case is due to arrive today.  Of course, Gayle gets the first two bottles as soon as I open it, this was a bit stronger that just a request.  I didn’t even know what the stuff cost but she did not care.  Now that I do know the cost, I am amazed that it isn’t more, but I am not going to tell the manufacturer that, Only $12/quart.  Knowing what other marine cleaners cost, this will soon become one of my affordable go-to’s, I can’t wait to try it around the kitchen.
