Keeping Your Boat Ship Shape.
Large and fancy or small and functional, every boat needs maintenance to keep you on the water for as many hours as possible. Routine maintenance with a healthy dollop of elbow grease will pay off in boating time and preserve your investment.
Wash Your Boat!
One of the easiest boat maintenance tasks is to wash your boat regularly. After every run if you boat in saltwater to remove salt residue. Salt will not only corrode metal, fasteners and other hardware, if it's left too long on your gelcoat, it can mar that as well. Use a long handled soft boat brush with marine detergent, which is formulated for gelcoat.
