Its your choice to research further in-depth we have simply broken it down as a guideline check for you. [Please read all your relevant owner’s manuals carefully and carry out their recommendations.]
Remove tarps or canvas covers and clean, replace damaged, old ropes or bungees.
Give your boat a good scrub. (Check your boat manufactures recommendation for the best hull cleaning product if any) Top to bottom, to remove buildup of dirt, organic matter etc..
Check over the boat’s hull and the interior for signs of corrosion or rust, damage or wear. Secure and check all fixtures, cables, screws and bolts replace if required.
Replace old mouldy sealant to keep water out and looking tidy again.
