HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BOAT

• At least once a season, wash and wax all exposed fiberglass surfaces to extend the life of the gel coat finish or paint.

• Never use the windshield wiper if the windshield is not wet. Dried salt or dirt on the windshield can scratch the glass.

• Never apply wax or buffing compound to a gel coat surface in direct sunlight.

• Never use any polish containing lemon or lemon scents on vinyl. The lemon juice will attack the vinyl and shorten its life.

• Sun tan oil, lotions, waxes and polishes contain oils and dyes that can cause stiffening and staining of vinyls.
