A Wash Too Far?
Posted: November 1, 2012
- In many cases a freshwater rinse will do. Think logically. Is there stubborn dirt, stains, fish blood, etc.? If not, just rinse it down.
- You just got done using the boat Saturday and are planning to enjoy it all day again Sunday. Just rinse it Saturday and then wash it Sunday. Basically, if you plan on using the boat two or three days in a row, rinse it at the end of each day and then wash it at the end of the last day.
- Shoot for once a week. Make sure the boat gets a good washdown once a week, and just rinse it after each use in between. Even if the boat is not used that week, still give it a weekly wash.
- Spot clean as needed. If you had a big party on the boat or you went fishing and the back deck is really trashed, then by all means wash it down. But if you are headed out again the next day, just rinse the rest of the vessel. Save the full washdown for the end.
These tips will help preserve the longevity of the wax, make your job easier and keep your boat spotless.
