FAQ's About Washing a Boat

Explore Answers to Your Questions

How often should you wash your boat?

The frequency of washing your boat depends on its storage location and environment. If your boat is stored in-water, in saltwater environments, or near high fallout areas such as cities, highways, or airports, more frequent washing is necessary.

In these conditions, weekly or bi-weekly cleanings are recommended to remove contaminants and protect the boat’s surfaces.

Can I use Dawn dish soap to wash my boat?

The quick answer is yes, you can use Dawn to wash a boat. However, the thing to remember about washing your boat with Dawn dish soap is that it will stip any wax that is currently applied to the surfaces of your vessel. This means there will no longer be any protection from the UV rays and other harsh marine elements.

We recommend using only a marine grade boat soap to wash your boat or yacht gelcoat or painted sufaces. The brand we use is from Starke Yacht Care. You absolutely cannot go wrong with ANY of their products, and it is strictly what we use here at J&J Boat Services.

Is it OK to pressure wash a boat?

Yes, it is generally safe to pressure wash a boat, but you need to use the correct settings and techniques. Here are some tips:

Use Low Pressure: Set the pressure washer to a low setting to avoid damaging the boat’s surface, paint, or decals.

Appropriate Nozzle: Use a wide-angle nozzle to spread the water over a larger area, reducing the risk of concentrated pressure damage.

Safe Distance: Maintain a safe distance from the surface while washing to prevent harm to the gel coat or paint.

Avoid Sensitive Areas: Be cautious around sensitive areas like electronics, seals, and upholstery.

What happens if you don't wash your boat?

Neglecting to wash your boat can lead to several issues:

Corrosion and Damage: Saltwater, dirt, and pollutants can corrode and damage your boat’s surface and components.

Algae and Marine Growth: Without regular cleaning, algae, barnacles, and other marine organisms can accumulate, affecting performance and fuel efficiency.

Dull Appearance: Dirt and grime can cause your boat’s finish to become dull and unattractive over time.

5 Benefits of J&J's Boat Washes & Wash Maintenance Programs

Maximizing Your Vessel's Value and Performance

1. Convenience with Set and Forget Services

J&J Boat Services offers a convenient “set and forget” service. Once enrolled, you no longer need to worry about remembering the next cleaning date.

The wash service is scheduled at regular intervals, ensuring your boat receives the necessary attention without you having to keep track. Whether it’s a spontaneous weekend trip or a planned outing, your boat is prepared and ready to go.

    2. Keeps Your Boat in Prime Condition

    Regular washing prevents the build-up of dirt, salt, and grime that can harm your boat’s finish. Cleaning your boat regularly removes saltwater, bird droppings, rust stains, and other contaminants that can corrode the surface. This practice not only keeps your boat looking good but also helps extend its lifespan by preventing long-term damage from harmful deposits.

      3. Enhances Boat Performance and Safety

      A clean boat performs better and is safer. Algae and other marine growth can impact the boat’s hydrodynamics, but clean boat surfaces reduces drag and improves fuel efficiency.

        4. Cost-Effective in the Long Run

        While there may be a cost for these services, they are a valuable investment in the long run. Addressing minor issues like salt corrosion or grime buildup can prevent major, costly repairs down the line.

        A well-maintained boat holds a higher resale value. Regular washing and care can be a significant selling point when you decide to upgrade or change your vessel.

            5. Enhances Resale Value

            Quality boat washing services help preserve your boat’s resale value. When you finally decide it is time to sell, a well-maintained and clean vessel can command a higher price. Regular washing keeps your boat in excellent condition, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
