Cleaning a boat can seem like a whole lot of work, but with the right boat cleaning products, you can have your boat clean as quickly as possible!
Do not scrub your boat with harsh products, as these could affect and scratch the finishing. When cleaning, start with a hose down, or a simple cleaning with a microfiber cloth, in order to remove all the grime and lose dirt.
Gyeon USA Company has some of the best boat cleaning supplies. Here’s a look at boat cleaning step-by-step process:
Wash the Hull and Deck
After giving your boat a hose down to remove all dirt and grime, it’s time to give it a good cleaning. Ensure to get all the corners well cleaned, including under the seats. Use a non-slip cleaner for the deck and then rinse again, to remove all the soapy water.
Drying your Boat
Drying is an extremely important part of the boat cleaning exercise. It is actually more important than the cleaning itself. You should use a microfiber towel to dry your boat, which ensures the paint job is not scratched.
The best drying product however is a BLO Car Dryer. This drying machine offers a contact-less drying process that ensures you dry every nook and cranny of the boat, even though it is going back to the ocean.
Other Boat Detailing Tasks
Other than cleaning and drying, there are a few other steps you can take to ensure your boat is in tip-top shape, and completely dirt free. These include:
Have you seen how some yachts are usually extremely shiny? Well, waxing does this. A good coat of wax applied in circular motion after the boat is nice and dry will ensure it appears shiny and new. Waxing also ensures that dirt doesn't stick on the surface of the boat, and also keeps it durable for longer.
Cleaning the Canvas
Mildew and mold are common on the boat canvas if left unchecked. You should wash the canvas often with lukewarm water and finish with a rinse of clear water. Always allow the canvas to dry completely.
The Dacron sails or canvas will not require too much maintenance if you hose them down after each use, and also give them time to completely dry before stowing. If you need to wash them, you can use a mild cleaner, water and soft brush.
Looking After The Teak
The teak’s non-slip surface should be cleaned by scrubbing it along the grain with a mild cleanser and water, using a soft bristled brush. Use a sealer and teak oil to maintain it looking fresh.
Cleaning the Outboard Engine
This will require a mild cleaner. For any tough spots, use a soft bristled brush, coarse sponge and a degreaser. Give it a nice rinse in the end and dry it using an AIR-GT Car Dryer Blower. This ensures all parts of the engine are nice and dry.
Cleaning Your Vinyl Boat Seats
These are designed to use around water, but they could also use a good clean. A thorough wash, using a mild cleaner, a clean water rinse and quick dry with a BLO dryer will ensure the seats are 100% clean.
