Boat Cleaning for Storage

Boat Cleaning for Storage
Top side and bottom side preparation for winter storage
For many, the end of summer means the end of boat season. Zep can help you prepare your boat for dry storage, with our chart of recommended products.  
Cleaning the inside and above-water areas is important to protect the boat and extend its life. An end-of-season cleaning is imperative, however, Zep also recommends regularly cleaning throughout the season. 
Cleaning the bottom of the boat is also necessary at the end of the season.  Before you start, remove the boat from the water and rinse the water collected to avoid runoff. Be careful when scraping off barnacles.
