Boat Preservation!

Imagine standing outside exposed for 1 full day – taking on weather elements as they come. No protection just you and the clothes on your back.

What would you look like? How long would you last without protection?

Let’s take a look at what you could experience:

A sudden burst of rain pouring down from the heavens, soaking to the core – fun on a hot summer days :) but a real freeze in winter :( The perfect ecosystem created to house moss and fungus in the dam of your clothes and maybe even a few mushrooms in your shoes.

 What about a little bit of dust, settling on your shoulder, just enough to bring out the hay fever in you. Even the finest layer can cause  a major damper on anyone’s colour scheme. You trade in clean and new for rustic and coated.

Let us not forget the prevailing wind that appears out of nowhere to blow your hair back and around. A tornado of leaves swirl around your feet, slapping at legs – an naturally painful exfoliater… real romantic story… 

Feeling uncomfortable yet?

 Well don’t take your shirt off in case of a hail storm. The little red marks that remain from a hail encounter are not pleasant.  Imagine a million paint balls falling from the sky with vicious velocity awaiting a helpless target (yes…You!). Unprotected you try dodge them – virtually impossible.

 Finally the onslaught ends with a break of sunshine – yes the end in near! The bright sun dries up all the rain leaving you feeling hopeful. Unfortunately the hot sun has no limit to the temperatures it will go to pity a poor soul subjected to its harmful rays. You skin begins hardened by the dust left behind, causing cracks in your face, legs and arms. You feel the stretch of your flesh as the heat expands your body, shades of red appear and little heat weaves radiate and you can barely hold off any longer….

Why would anyone want to subject themselves to this, especially when protective items are available? : hat / umbrella / suntan lotion / water ensuring your complete outdoor protection!

Why then do we abandon and neglect our boats, jet ski, outboard motors golf carts, jacuzzi to fend the harmful weather conditions by themselves. Unable to provide their own protection they look to us to ensure they are kept in good nick, to give us the life enjoyment we paid for! 

Our weather conditions exposure of marine and auto vehicles to disintegration:         coatings peal, dust eats away at upholstery, fungus takes residence in the carpeting, glue comes unstuck, rubber begins to warps, scratches appear on glossy coatings and fading occurs.

SOLUTION! Invest in a boat cover, engine cover, canopy, tonneau cover – something that will take the punishment, something affordable, something that is made to guard against and with stand the elements that come your way!

Boat Cover protection – its the only way!
