Spring Clean Your Boat


The snow is gone, the sun is shining, and you feel you can finally face Mother Nature and come out of hibernation. Spring must be here! And for all you nature-loving, dry-land fearing people out there, you know boat season is right around the corner. Whether you took proper care of your boat prior to storing it away for the winter or not, we have tips to help you set sail with ease.

Clean it

Wiggle it out from the garage, dig it out from the yard, or jump on that offer you saw for a used boat and get to work. Use some mild detergent and warm water to scrub the interior and exterior of your boat. Bacteria and germs were likely eating away at the enamel of your boat while it was stored away- make it look good as new to avoid this problem.

Inspect it

Once your boat’s clean, give it a thorough inspection. Check to see if there’s any major damage including scratches, scrapes, holes, etc. You’re perfectly able to fix some of these minor bumps and bruises yourself; and we all know a little elbow grease only makes us appreciate things a bit more.

Replace it

The electrical units within your boat are vital. Not only do they assist in actually running your machine, but they help you get to land in the unfortunate event you fall off track and get lost. Inspect your engine, depth finder, GPS, radio, and any other instruments you may have on board.

Wax it/Paint it

Once you’re sure your boat is safe, clean, and in working condition- give it some personality. Give it a fresh coat of paint- and maybe even change its color and name. Consider applying protectant over the boat so marine life and water won’t wear away at all the hard work you’ve put in. Most of these products have a wax-base within it, but feel free to wax it yourself for that extra sparkle and shine.

Don’t forget to be safe on the water!
