Are you confused about how to begin taking care of your boat? Whether a new boat owner or a seasoned one, it’s time to maintain your boat properly! Grab a bucket of soapy water, and take a look at these tips on how to keep your boat clean.

Interior

Cleaning the interior of your boat is necessary to prevent cracking and corrosion. Start with vacuuming your marine carpet to remove any particles and debris. Then it’s time to scrub it clean with soap and water, making sure to wet-vac when done.

Cushions can become caked with dirt and mildew. Take special precautions because most have antimicrobial properties. Leave the harsh chemicals at home and opt for a good old fashioned bucket of water and soap. When tough stains won’t come out, tackle them with a marine vinyl cleaner.

Exterior

Each boat has a gel protective coating that helps protect itself from salt and the sun. However, if not adequately maintained, oxidation occurs. You can take care of this by giving it a good coating of wax and polish. Just like that, your boat will be shining and looking brand-new again!

Storage

The sun and harsh weather conditions could affect your boat leaving it dirty and, much worse, damaged. When you store your boat under a boat lift cover, you protect your boat.
