The time of year is here for you to get the most use out of your aluminum boat, but it’s still important to keep up with regular maintenance. This ensures you can keep your boat in top shape. The easiest and best ways to do this are to remember to make sure you keep your boat dry and your aluminum clean each time you take it out of the water.
Keep Your Boat Dry
Although boats are designed to be in the water, it is important to keep them dry when they are out of it. Not drying a boat off can lead to rust, mold growth, and odor. Upon taking your boat out of the water, you should let the water drain. While the water is draining, be on the lookout for any sand or debris. Leaving either of these on the boat can cause just as much water damage as if you were to leave your boat in the water. Also, be sure to dry off your aluminum once your boat is on dry land.
Keep the Aluminum Clean
Just as it is important to keep your boat dry, it’s essential to keep it clean as well. Cleaning your aluminum can improve the health of the boat and prolong the boat’s lifespan. To properly clean the aluminum, you should wash it with soap and hot water.
After that, you will want to use an aluminum boat cleaner. Be sure to properly wash off the cleaner. Lastly, you will use a restorer and a polish. It’s important to follow the directions of the specific product you are using to reduce the risk of causing any damage to the aluminum.
