Hi, I’m Ches Rainier, welcome to Expert Village.
Today we’re going to be talking about some techniques used to clean a fiberglass boat.
Alright, now we’re going to talk about some techniques to use with the soap of the boat,
because you’ve got to put a little soap in sometimes otherwise it just won’t get clean.
So you’ve got to get yourself a good biodegradable soap. So a little drops, not too much, and adds some water. Most of the time you
can get away with just a rinse down and let it dry. If you keep up with your maintenance
then soap really isn’t necessary. What I like to do is hit all the bird droppings
and areas where there’s a lot of stains going on the boat first, and then go over the rest
of the boat lightly because it doesn’t need to be scrubbed quite as hard. This is just
a plastic brush you can get at any hardware store. I tested it out on some of the surfaces
here and it’s not too abrasive on the finish of the boat so that’s the main thing you’ve
got to watch out for. You need it to be abrasive enough to get off whatever you’re trying to
scrub off. Some of these bird droppings can be pretty stubborn, but you definitely don’t
want to ruin the finish of the boat.
