Three reasons to update your gelcoat finish as part of annual maintenance

posted on Apr 26

Because the weather in North Idaho has been gradually getting nicer lately, the team at the Resort Boat Shop has already started commissioning boats for summer. Boaters in the northwest are getting their boats ready so when the first nice day comes around, they can hit the water without waiting to commission their boat.
When you come in to have your boat commissioned for summer, along with the annual maintenance such as checking filters, changing oils and checking fluids, have your exterior buffed and waxed. A gelcoat finish is one of the top priorities a boat owner should have done each year. Here are three reasons why:

  1. Protection
    An annual update of the gelcoat finish protects the boat from UV rays and sunlight, which can dull the finish after long periods of time. 
  2. Longevity
    Caring for your boat will ultimately make it last longer.
  3. Appearance
    Buff out any scratches or dings to keep your boat looking great, and help protect the surface from easily being scratched again.
