Keep Your Boat Sparkling: A West Central Ohio Guide to DIY Detailing (or Call the Pros!)

Owning a boat in West Central Ohio is a wonderful way to enjoy our lakes and waterways. But let's face it – the weather can be harsh, whether it's the summer sun beating down or winter grime that lingers after transport.  To keep your boat looking great and protect it season after season, regular detailing is a must.

Here's a simple DIY guide to boat detailing, along with why you might consider the professionals at Onyx Mobile Detailing for a hassle-free, top-notch finish.

5 Steps to a Detailed Boat

  1. Wash Down: No surprise here! For best results, always use a soap made for boats. These won't damage your gel coat or other finishes. Remember, in West Central Ohio, you may need extra focus on spots where lake buildup or road salt cling.  Rinse away every last bit of soap to avoid streaks.

  2. Deck Duty: Your deck sees it all – footprints, bait, you name it. A non-skid cleaner and soft-bristle brush will get the dirt out without harming the textured surface.  Let the deck dry completely after rinsing.

  3. Polish Up: Marine-grade polish restores shine and fights UV damage.  Pay special attention to areas that get the most sun and hands-on use. Onyx Mobile Detailing can expertly handle this part if polishing isn't your favorite task.

  4. Wax On: High-quality marine wax seals the deal – it repels water, protects against stains, and makes your boat gleam. Apply carefully in sections, then buff to a gorgeous shine.

  5. Inside Matters: Don't neglect the interior!  Marine upholstery cleaners make fast work of seats and cushions. Wipe down vinyl with protectant, vacuum carpets, and get into all the storage nooks. For the most thorough interior refresh, a pro detailer will make sure no crumb is left behind.
