One of the best ways to help your boat stand out on the water is through one of Marine Graphics Ink’s custom wraps for boats. Simple to install and maintain, fishing boat wrap designs are the easy way to add personality to your boat.
Below are some cleaning and maintenance tips to help keep your boat wrap looking its best.
Clean Your Vinyl Regularly
It’s best to wash dirt off your boat vinyl wrap when you get out of the water, as this ensures your boat maintains a clean, consistent appearance. Washing your boat with water helps to remove most of the dirt and salt, which is a standard practice for boat owners. It’s recommended that high pressure washers are not used on vinyl wraps as this can damage the print.
Occasionally, boat owners should also spray the vinyl with a solution of mild soap (dishwashing liquid) and water. Dishwashing liquid is mild and a degreasing soap, making it a good choice for keeping your boat clean.
Once your boat has been cleaned, rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a silicone squeegee and microfiber cloth.
Keep It Gentle
When cleaning your boat, instead of using abrasive products, opt for a mild soap and a soft cloth. Similarly, it’s best to avoid using high-pressure washers or hard brushes to clean custom fishing boat wraps, as this can cause discolouration and scratching, and may even lift the edges of the wrap.
Transport and Store Safely
As with any boat, if it is possible to do so, store it undercover when not in use to ensure the boat wraps’ protection from the elements.
Transportation straps and buckles can damage the wrap if they are too tight, so place foam or cloth between the cover and the wrap to ease the pressure on the vinyl and reduce wear and tear.
It’s also important to ensure corrosive substances such as fuel do not remain in contact with the boat wrap for prolonged periods, as this can damage the vinyl wrapping.
