Properly cleaning your boat

16 Apr 2023

If you’re a boat owner, you know that proper cleaning is essential to keeping your boat in top condition. Not only does it keep your boat looking great, but it also helps prevent damage and prolongs the life of your vessel. In this blog post, we’ll give you some tips on how to properly clean your boat, with the help of Sunshine Coast boating experts at Boathoist.

  1. Rinse your boat The first step in cleaning your boat is to rinse it thoroughly with fresh water. This helps remove any salt, dirt, or debris from the surface, which can cause damage if left unchecked.
  2. Use a boat-specific cleaning product When cleaning your boat, it’s essential to use a product specifically designed for boats. These products are formulated to remove dirt and stains without damaging the boat’s surface.
  3. Use a soft-bristled brush When scrubbing your boat, use a soft-bristled brush to avoid scratching the surface. A stiff-bristled brush or abrasive pad can cause damage to your boat’s finish.
  4. Work from top to bottom When cleaning your boat, start at the top and work your way down. This helps prevent dirt and debris from being pushed down onto clean areas.
  5. Don’t forget the hull The hull is the most important part of your boat to clean, as it’s in constant contact with the water. Use a boat-specific hull cleaner to remove any buildup or stains.
  6. Rinse again After scrubbing, rinse your boat thoroughly with fresh water to remove any remaining dirt or cleaning product.
  7. Dry your boat Finally, dry your boat with a soft towel to prevent water spots and to ensure that it’s completely dry before storage.

In conclusion, properly cleaning your boat is essential to keeping it in top condition. With the help of Sunshine Coast boating experts at Boathoist, you can follow these tips to keep your boat looking great and to prolong its life.
