Is it better to use Alumetron or VS721 to protect my pontoons?

For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

It’s best to use both. Alumetron protects the aluminum against corrosion, oxidation, staining etc. and VS721 gives added protection to the area below the waterline against fouling and the area above the waterline against UV, minor scuffing and soiling.

Alumetron comes with a 3 year warranty that is automatically increased to 5 years if you protect it with VS721.

Make sure that your pontoons are pristine prior to applying Alumetron. If you boat is new, wash the pontoons well with Boat Clean Plus and water and apply after they are dry. If it’s an older boat clean and restore the pontoons with AlgexAlumabrite CBX and Alumabuff as required.

You can find more information in the Ask the Skipper Blog and our How to Videos section.

Thanks for your question,
