What can I use to clean my boat deck?
For general cleaning, the US distributer for Treadmaster recommends that you scrub it with a medium bristle deck brush, using a boat soap that is specifically formulated for the marine environment —the same as you would for washing down the rest of your boat.
Can I use bleach on my boat deck?
Yes, you can use bleach to clean your boat, whether it’s fiberglass or the vinyl boat seats.
Can you use Comet on a fiberglass boat?
Keep the comet and ajax away from your fiberglass, if you look at an angle in the right light you’ll see very fine scratches. There are special abrasive fiberglass cleaners that polish, not scratch.
Can I use Dawn to wash my boat?
Dish Soap – Designed to cut grease and tough stains, these soaps are extremely caustic and will quickly strip your wax. It’s better to use a dedicated boat soap like our Brite Wash. It will clean your boat without stripping the wax and is biodegradable to boot.
Can I use vinegar to clean my boat?
Pour equal parts white vinegar and water in it. Spray. It cleans glass and other surfaces and also disinfects. Try adding some lemon juice for a pleasant scent.
Is bleach bad for fiberglass?
Stay away from bleach But bleach can also ruin the resin in fiberglass, so you don’t want to be scrubbing it onto tubs or your shower walls. Ammonia is safe on fiberglass though, so it’s a viable option.
What is the problem with using your boat’s engine to drive it onto a trailer?
NOTE – While many people drive the boat onto the trailer, it isn’t advised. Using the engine to assist trailering erodes the ramp bed, can lead to debris being sucked into the engine, and can cause an accident! Make sure you drain all water from the boat – the bilge, the live well, the trailer lights, etc.
What’s the best way to clean a fiberglass boat?
Use a specialized boat cleaning soap, and follow the instructions for mixing amounts into a bucket of water. Once your soap and water are mixed, wash your boat’s gelcoat surface with a long-handled soft brush or sponge, and rinse it off again thoroughly with fresh water to remove any excess grime, dust and debris.
How do you get rid of heavy oxidation?
Light-to-moderate oxidation can be removed with polishing compounds, while heavy oxidation requires a rubbing compound. Apply the compound gently to a small area, work it into the paint and remove it quickly, repeating until all signs of oxidation are gone.
