How to Clean a Sailboat : Tools & Soaps for Cleaning a Sailboat


Hi, I’m Ches Rainer welcome to Expert Village.
Today we are going to be talking about some techniques used to clean a fiberglass boat.
In this clip we are going to talk about some of the tools and cleaning fluids we are going
to use to clean the boat today. We got a deck brush (non abrasive), a more abrasive deck
brush, this can be used on the bottom of the boat or if there is any mold anything like
that on the boat, you want to test it in a small area to make sure it’s not going to
scratch up the boat finish (cause you don’t want to do that). You need a bucket for water
and solvents, a shammy to dry it afterwards, especially the windows cause they are going
to get any hard water stains that are really going to show up. You need a plastic cleaner.
Most boats have plastic windows and you want something that is not going to scratch up
the window or haze it. Another plastic cleaner, a little scrub brush to get into harder reach
spots, I like to use some simple green it’s non toxic. You’re going to need some soap,
make sure that is biodegradable also cause we are in a marine environment. I got some
polish that I use for the stainless steel throughout the boat, a nice microphobic cloth
is always good and wax for when done drying the boat.
