How To: Power wash your boat

Power wash your boat

This video is led by Eddie from Long Island Boaters Club. As the boating season ends, Eddie explains, it is very important to clean and prepare your boat for storage for the winter. An important part of this process is to power wash the algae growth and barnacle debris that can cover the hull very quickly. After taking the boat out of the water and placing on blocks, he lets it sit for one day. Then using a pressure washer, he removes the algae growth. A scraper is used to remove the actual barnacles, as well as, a chemical to remove the remains that can't be scraped. The pictures of the boat before and after the power washing are quite impressive. As Eddie explains, this process definitely helps extend the life of the boat. Additional videos can be found at Long Island Boaters.
