Scratches on your new boat — paint peeling off your beloved boat and deteriorating Gelcoat — these are some of the situations we never want you to see. Just as cars need to be protected from rust and scratches, a boat needs just as much care to protect its hull from damage that water and even the ground can cause. As saltwater slowly and gradually destroys the hull, transporting your boat without protecting the hull can leave some serious marks that you may not like to see when you retrieve your boat. The Boat Hull Guard is one of the most important accessories your boat needs for its protection.
What is a boat hull protector?
Boat hull protectors adhere to your boat’s hull to protect it from potential damage, stains, scratches, and water damage. They are available in different sizes depending on the size of your boat. Some protectors come with special instructions and should only be installed by professionals. Getting professional help to cover your Boat Hull Protector is by far the best thing to do if you are looking for precision and a good life for your boat.

Cleaning and waxing your hull is a great way to make sure that one of the largest and most important parts of your boat has a long life. Use these maintenance tips at least once a year to keep your Hull Protection for Boat looking its best.
Clean the hull of your boat
By using a boat hull cleaner and boat protector, you can remove build-ups from your boat’s hull and protect it from the sun, weather, and water damage. It takes a lot of effort, but take the time to clean every square inch of your torso. Spend more time anywhere it looks dull or dirty. If you have a can that’s too big to hand wash, use a pressure washer, but be sure to choose a pressure washer with the correct PSI so you don’t damage the hull.
Especially if your helmet is vinyl with a gel coat, you should use a protective spray at least once a year.
Wax the hull of your boat
Boat wax will not only make your boat look good, but it will also protect your hull and make it glide more easily in the water. There are two main types of boat washing.
Boat wax stick
Boat wash paste can be difficult to apply. It should be rubbed and polished with a car polisher. This gives you a glossy, long-lasting protective layer that needs to be reapplied at least once a year.
Liquid boat wash
Liquid boat wax is very easy to apply to the hull and gives it a nice shine. These waxes can come in the form of sprays, which makes them even easier to apply. Liquid wax does not last as long as wax paste and should be applied in spring and fall.
The wax is intended to prevent, not reverse, damage and wear to your helmet. This is why it is so important to wash and wax your Inflatable Boat Hull Protection regularly when your boat is new. This gives it a new look.
