What should I use to clean my new aluminum boat


Mark A. Vandemore asked:

I purchased a new aluminum boat with painted sides. The dealer said to not do anything to the aluminuf it just needs cleaning, you can use Boat Clean Plus or Boat Scrub. Boat Scrub can be used to polish aluminium to a mirror finish, but it is a bit of work Alumabrite CBX is much easier. VS721 Bottom Coat works well on the bottom to keep it clean. It will also improve the performance, speed and fuel economy of your boat.

For the painted surfaces, you can protect it with Premium Boat Shine or Kwik Shine if you do it on a regular basis. Kwik Shine cleans as well as shines and protects.


Thanks for your question.
