Boat cleaning can be overwhelming, but proper cleaning and protection is a must to preserve resale value as well as the beauty of the craft. In many cases prevention is far cheaper than repair! We have the skills, experience and products to care for your boat. At a minimum, boats should be cared for once a year.


Whether you have a canoe, bass boat or yacht, you're in love with the feel of wind in your hair, the warmth of the sun on your back, and the smell of fresh, open water. Unfortunately, these same elements pay havoc on canvas, vinyl, carpet, plastic, chrome, Fiberglass, Gel coat and of course, wood. Let us take your watercraft back to it's original condition.

Boats lose their value faster than any other large purchase you'll own. Surprisingly, this is NOT due to failure of the boat manufacturers or the marine industry in general. It's because boat owners do not properly care for their investment or invest the time and money into a regular maintenance schedule.

Boats are more difficult to wash, wax, polish and vacuum than any of our "Big Boy Toys". This does not make them enjoyable to detail. It's a never ending battle to keep them in good condition. Boats become scummy, smelly and duller faster than anything you'll own.

    Oxidation removal repair Tacoma | Lake Tapps      exterior boat refinishing detailer Puget Sound Washington  

If the surface of your boat appears dull or chalky, it is likely that your gel coat has oxidized.  Below is a rough guide to tell what condition your gel coat is in.

 

Light Oxidation

If your boat's gel coat is slightly oxidized, most of the surface will be shiny with a few patches of dullness or cloudiness. At this stage of oxidation, a simple oxidation removing compound applied to the hull will remove oxidation and restore the shine.

 

Medium Oxidation

The entire surface of the boat will be dull with little reflectivity, and there will be signs of pitting. To remove the oxidation and smooth the pitting, a polishing compound is applied using a machine buffer. The polish, similar to fine sandpaper, removes the pitted surface rather than coating it.

 

Heavy Oxidation

The entire surface of the boat will have no reflectivity and may be chalky to the touch - pitting is obvious. At this stage of oxidation, washing, sanding and polishing are required. In most cases though, restoration will mean intense work to restore the shine and will require the attention of a professional. In the worst oxidation cases, the gel coat may be beyond restoration and painting the boat may be the only option.
