How often should you clean your boat?

As a general rule, you should clean your boat every 4 – 12 weeks to protect your boat’s surfaces. The buildup of salt and dirt interferes with a metal’s ability to resist corrosion. Additionally, gelcoat and marine vinyl are porous surfaces and thus have characteristics that allow them to absorb water, dirt, and grime from their surroundings. Unprotected vinyl seats are more likely to develop mold and more likely to fade and crack with frequent sun exposure. Lastly, fiberglass that is uncared for will stain and discolor more easily over time, notwithstanding simply degrading through oxidation and literally chalk away.

However, you may need to clean your boat more often due to a number of factors.

Do you need a transom saver or motor support when trailering your boat?

This is a controversial question, and boaters argue passionately on both sides of this issue.

When considering whether or not to use a transom saver or motor support, the following are generally the concerns:

Transom damage – the concern here is that as your trailered boat encounters bumps, potholes, and other hazards on the highway, the engine will bounce around and risk cracking or creating other damage to your boat’s transom.

Lower unit damage – the worry here is that you run the risk of your lower unit making contact with the road as you traverse potholes, bumps, inclines, and other unevenness.

Hydraulic trim and tilt assembly and transom bracket – stress caused by the outboard engine bouncing around or drifting from side to side while the boat is trailered can lead the motor toter to suffer problems.

General engine stress – damage from general vibration and bouncing around as you trailer your boat.

For more details about the argument on both sides of the issue, read this article.
