Boats are amazing machines, aren’t they? Their complexity can rival that of a commercial airliner. A boat requires ongoing maintenance for its hundreds of parts to remain operational. It’s no surprise that the products, additives, fluids, lubricants, paints, sealants, cleaners and chemicals needed to keep a boat well-maintained represent dozens of boat cleaning supplies and marine-grade products.
The best name in cleaning supplies is Star Brite. They make stain removers and cleaners that cover every surface area (deck, hull, bilge, tower, trailer, rail) and material (vinyl, canvas, glass, metal).
Engine care products cover a range of applications, from 2- and 4-stroke outboards to gasoline and diesel engines. The type of engine care products ranges from engine oil and tuner to fogging oil and oil change pumps.
Fuel additives provide the job of treating, conditioning or stabilizing either diesel or gasoline fuel. They serve to improve fuel economy, improve performance and reduce friction in the fuel pump, injectors, and combustion chamber.
Gear lubes are specific to the outboard engine type or sterndrive you have. For Evinrude and Johnson outboards and OMC sterndrives, you’ll want to buy brand-specific premium gear lube. Every application requires its own specific type of lubricants and greases.
When you are looking for a sealant to use either above or below the water line, you want to buy a marine-grade sealant that’s intended for your specific application. We stock popular 3M sealants like their 5200 marine sealants and their 4200 marine sealants.
Formulated for the marine environment, engine paint is a boater’s best friend. Marine engine spray paint can be used on all outboard and inboard engines, stern drive, and lower unit applications. You can buy color spray paint matched to your engine.
Keeping a boat looking like new requires patience and elbow grease. There are numerous rubbing compounds and finishing products that will make this extra effort worth your time. 3M is a household brand that we stock as well as Star Brite refinishing products.
Don’t forget waterproofing and teak care. You can stock up and save on shipping.
By now, you may be thinking of hiring a professional boat detailer. We suspect you prefer to maintain your boat yourself. If that’s the case, check out this resource on Basic Boat Maintenance.
Before you become overwhelmed with all this boat cleaning, just make a promise to yourself to keep a maintenance log. That way you’ll have a methodical approach to the care and cleaning of your boat and a record of the chemicals and compounds you used.
Give yourself the gift of carefree boating. After all, that’s what the boating lifestyle is all about.
