You know after a significant number of years in boating you accumulate more than you tend to let go.

Having a house-purge garage sale next weekend now that the kiddos are getting older and alot of the baby toys, etc. as well as "stuff" that I have held onto needs to go. That should help clear up some garage space to help better organize the stuff we use often.

The shelf above the boat is great because we can back the boat in and take everything out while in the boat instead of having to use a ladder, etc. Same goes for hanging up the ropes, vests and suits.

Normally we end up going out to dinner at the local gringo mexican place near our house.

At the lake it its just pull the main plug and store everything so it wont blow out on the ride to dinner. Get to the joint and I open up all the compartments to include the engine hatch so they can start to dry out. Get home and unload the coolers and towels. Give the boat a very quick 5 minute was down with car soap and dry the hull, trailers and wheels. Give the interior a very quick and lite spray of 303. Then back the boat up near her covered parking and open all the hatches again so they can dry some more. I'll let it sit out as long as I'm up and the dew hasn't started to condense, then toss the cover on and back her up.

We dry off the hull top and sides then spray wax with body gloss. Unhook the latches that hold the motor box down. I have a strap that holds the motor box about 6-8" off the floor to allow air to circulate as we trailer it.

A little Mexican induced gas aids the drying process? You learn something new everyday!😣

I personally use a spray wax from Showcar which is a local detail supplier.

Rockman - I feel better after seeing your picture. I thought I had a bunch of stuff but you win. very nice set-up

trick from fellow boaters, use a white vinegar and water mix in a spray bottle (70% water 30% vinegar), spray side of boat after done and use chamos to dry. It will remove water spots and scum. Works great and is super cheap.


I carry a 5 gallon bucket in my truck with all cleaning supplies and it is always ready when I need it
