Boat Cleaning Supplies and Maintenance
Your boat is an investment and keeping it clean will ensure years of comfort and recreation for you and your passengers. From hull to stern, some of the areas above and below deck and their finishes get a workout every time that you and your passengers cast off. They can become stained from food and beverage spills. Or swimmers can track sand and silt from muddy river bottoms across your decking. Portholes and windscreens can become streaked with salt spray.
When you dock after a day at sea, take the time to wash your boat. If you boat in saltwater, rinse your boat’s exterior with fresh water after every outing. This will remove any salt residue which corrodes metal hardware and, long-term, your boat’s gelcoat. A good marine boat wash product is best. New boat owners can benefit from using Meguiar’s New Boat Owner Starter Kit. It includes all the products needed to protect your boat’s finish and takes the guesswork out of buying boat cleaning supplies.
Wholesale Marine recommends starting with Starbright Salt Off with PTEF, which removes far more salt residue than water alone. With a little elbow grease and the right products, however, you can keep your craft looking showroom new. If your craft is fiberglass, Toon-Brite Fiberglass Boat Cleaner will ensure that your gelcoat is well-protected. Just apply and rinse off. All it takes is a few boat cleaning supplies from Wholesale Marine.
If a hot and humid summer has left mildew stains on your seating, use Starbrite Mildew Stain Remover to remove it completely. For mold and mildew on vinyl and plastic seating, we recommend Flitz’ Eisenglass & Plastic Restoration kit as well as Meguiar’s Vinyl & Rubber Cleaner. Children and pets can also be particularly hard on boat furniture. Starbrite Boat Scuff Erasers will remove most marks and their concentrated Vinyl Cleaner and Shampoo will eradicate set in stains. Once you’ve cleaned your seating’s canvas and fabric upholstery, protect it against future stains with 303 Aerospace Fabric Guard Water Repellant or Starbright’s Fabric Waterproofing with PTEF.
Wholesale Marine carries every product you’ll need to keep every surface of your boat clean. We also have surface protectant products to ensure that future maintenance tasks will be minimized.
