The boat is dull when i wash it Stop using jif or fairy liquid as you are harming the surface of the boat – use wash n shine shampoo which contains a small amount of glaze. Speed Finish will bring back the gloss for a short term fix.
My tender is always dirty Clean with our rib and dinghy cleaner and an eradicator sponge and then seal with our rib and dinghy sealant.
Plastic/vinyl windows are dull and i cannot see through them PVC restorer will replenish them and create a clear window again. This will also fill in surface scratches.
Polycarbonate hatches are scratched PVC restorer will fill in surface scratches however if the crazing in inside the polycarbonate there is nothing we can do with the scratches.
My boat in painted and i am planning a respray Resprays can cost an enormous amount of money – A Glaze reduces the need for a respray as it prolongs the life of the paint work. For example a narrow boat could be £8000 for a respray – when costing how much glaze is needed you could be looking at as little as £400.00 – what a saving!
My boat has antifoul and is taken out at the end of each season One tip we discovered from a customer at the Boat show who has a small boat and takes it out at the end of the season to give it a basic coat of antifoul is to use the heavy duty hull cleaner neat and leave on for a prolonged period of time to remove the thin layer of antifoul – he said it saved him hours of work!
My canopy has green stains from algae Use our new canopy cleaner which should remove the green staining Once you have the canopy clean please always seal it to stop the mildew and algae from returning using the new formula fabric protector.
Someone on the boat throws tea down the sink and doesn't wash it away so it has stained the GRP near to the sink outlet Why does no one ever admit to this!!! We have found the best way to remove this stain is either by using the eradicator sponges in the nano kit as the nano lubricant just aggitates the stain more or if it is quite bad use the marine preparation or if access is limited dilute Hull Cleaner and brush on. Hose off after 10 mins.
