How To Detail Your Boat Like A True Professional Part II
Step 3: Buff It Out
Your boat’s outside should look a lot better after a thorough boat cleaning, although somewhat dull when compared to when you first purchased it. To bring the shine back, you should start working on buffing the surface out by hand or use a rotary buffer in order to eliminate any oxidation and get the boat surface prepared for the waxing part of the overall detailing procedure.
Step 4: Wax On, then Wax Off
To provide your boat with that special showroom shine, you definitely need to apply wax to the surface. Wax not only shines the surface up to make it even more attractive but waxing your boat also protects its surface against grime and debris, which means you won’t need to detail it as frequently. Just as if you are waxing your car, make sure to concentrate only on small areas at once, buffing the wax off as you go until your boat’s exterior is glistening in pristine condition. One important thing to note is specialty boat wax, works a lot better than others that you might buy. That is due to the fact that boat wax is formulated specially to cope with increased water contact that is experienced by boats compared to cars. In order to maintain that newly waxed shine, a speed detailer can be used in between waxes in order to restore shine along with the very important UV protection.
Step 5: Cleaning the Interior of Your Boat
After the exterior of your boat has been thoroughly waxed and cleaned, it is time to start working on the interior. Like with the outside of your boat, multi-surface cleaners are ideal for a majority of cleaning tasks on the inside part of the boat since it is strong enough for cleaning stubborn areas, but still gentle enough so that surfaces are not damaged. For more stubborn marks and stains, you can use Spot Cleaner. For details, like the aluminum poles, a special metal polish can be used to clean them, and the same wax that you used on the exterior of the boat can be used to protect them.

The final step is to treat any fabrics with marine fabric guard in order to prevent mildew buildup and water absorption. These simple tips can help to ensure your boat looks brand new for many years.
