Your boat is a big investment, so keeping it clean and maintained is key. Storing it at Big Item Storage lets you access our washing stations to make the job much easier. Here are a few more tips to keep your boat in the best shape possible.

After a day out on the water, you’ll want to give your boat a top to bottom rinse. A good rinse will loosen any grime and make it easier to wash. This is especially important if you can’t fully wash the boat right away.

Choosing a boat-specific cleanser is your best bet. Harsh cleansing agents in other products can damage the finish. It’s important to attack the job in sections, otherwise soap will dry on the surface. Use a cloth or gentle sponge with a lot of lather to tackle a defined section. Then rinse that area before moving to the next section.

After drying your boat, you’ll want to apply a coat of wax. The wax creates a barrier that will make your next cleaning even easier. Purchase a boat-specific wax and apply in small sections, buffing it with a cloth as you go. With a little TLC, your boat will stay protected and looking great!
