The big question is how you can do it properly. Here’s what you can do to make it a success:
Boat Parts Perth Hull Maintenance
Rinse your Hull with Fresh Water after Every Trip
If your boat is made of aluminum or fiberglass, it is recommended to rinse your boat with fresh water after every trip. This will remove the remnants of the salt water, which can cause corrosion and wearing out for your boat.
Make sure that the electronics part of your boat is well-covered, to prevent any internal damage.
Wash your Boat Every Month
The most important task is to wash your boat every month. While rinsing off the salt water every trip is essential, it is still crucial to give your boat a bath regularly. Salt will corrode metal, fasteners and other hardware when left too long on your gel coat. Use a long-handle, soft-bristle boat brush and some quality soap. Marine boat wash is the best choice since it is formulated for gel coat. Car wash soap is next best and some boaters use laundry soap, too.
Polish and Wax Every Year
Over the years, marks and stubborn stains have already built up on the hull of your boat. For these stains use a soft brush and your chosen boat wax product. For stubborn stains use the pure concentrate and give a scrub with the brush. Once your boat is dry apply the boat wax and cleaner product. Apply the product with a soft cloth then buff off to leave the shiny polished finish.
