Keeping your new RIB or Inflatable Boat clean and protected against environmental damage can easily double the useful life of your boat, keep it looking like the day you bought it, increase your pride of ownership and bring a much higher return when it comes time to trade up or sell.
Your boat will be expected to live and survive in the Marine Environment; the toughest environment on the planet. It will be under constant attack from dirt, grime, UV, infrared, suntan lotion, marine growth, bacteria, bird and spider droppings, scuffs, stains, ozone and more. A simple and regular maintenance regime can easily defeat these ravages, but you need the right specialty products and procedure to do the job. Failure to keep your boat clean and protected will result in it looking old and tired before its time, may void your warranty and is sure to bring additional problems that can be costly to repair.
Using the right products to care for your boat is important. Household, automotive and industrial products can often cause more harm than good and should not be used. Aurora Boat Care Products are specially formulated for optimum care and maintenance of RIB and Inflatable boats. They’re endorsed, recommended and used by the top boat manufacturers in the world. These products are safe to use on Hypalon, PVC, Polyurethane, Rubber, Fiberglass and Aluminum.
NOTE: Detailed instructions for use and application of all products are on the product labels and on www.AuroraMarine.com
This is the easiest and best time to protect your boat. Within a few months in the marine environment, an unprotected boat can become soiled, stained, fouled and begin to degrade, requiring restoration before it can be properly protected.
When the special fabric for your tube and inflatable floor was manufactured, lubricants and other chemicals were used and they remain on the surface of the fabric after the boat was manufactured. It’s important to strip them away before applying the UV protector otherwise poor adhesion and failure of the protector can result. Even though your boat is new and appears clean, scrub it well with SPEED CLEAN™ and a MARINE POWER MITT™ to remove these pollutants, rinse well and dry. When the tube and fabric floor is dry, apply 2 coats of POLY GUARD™. These products may also be used to protect rub rails and other rubber fitments.
If the boat is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, apply REPELIN™ fouling release coating to all underwater fabric surfaces to reduce the attachment of marine fouling and make cleanup easier. REPELIN™ can also improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. These products are effective for use in salt as well as fresh water.
If your RIB is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, protect the gel coat with REPELIN™ fouling release coating. In addition to reducing the attachment of marine fouling it will keep the bottom cleaner, eliminate salt attachment, improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. Gel coat is porous and REPELIN™ will seal the pores to prevent osmosis blisters.
New gel coat is coated with a mold release agent which can impair proper bonding of long lasting protective coatings. To ensure proper attachment of REPELIN™, the hull must be scrubbed with SPEED CLEAN™ and a MARINE POWER MITT™ to remove any pollutants, prior to application.
If your RIB is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, protect the painted bottom with REPELIN™ fouling release coating. In addition to reducing the attachment of marine fouling it will keep the bottom cleaner, eliminate salt attachment, improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. Wash the surface first with INFLATABLE BOAT CLEANER™ to remove any pollutants and then apply 2 coats of REPELIN™. If the hull is raw aluminum, after washing as above, coat it first with ALUMETRON™ prior to applying REPELIN™.
The deck or floor surfaces of RIB’s either have a textured pattern or sand is imbedded in the gel coat, or paint, in order to provide traction and reduce slipping, especially when wet. Protecting them with wax or polish is not recommended as it can make them dangerously slippery. Left unprotected, the decks are susceptible to UV damage, soiling, staining and excessive scrubbing to keep them clean. SURE STEP™ is a pressure sensitive sealer and UV protective polish that utilizes Adaptive Reflex technology. It seals the surface, protects the New Boat shine and makes the decks easy to maintain and keep clean. When you step on the deck, your weight creates pressure which gives you grip. When you take your foot off, releasing the pressure, they become smooth and slippery again making dirt attachment difficult. When the decks are wet, the traction increases even more.
Scrub the non-skid deck with SPEED CLEAN™ and a scrub brush and the smooth parts with a MARINE POWER MITT™. Rinse well and dry. Apply 2 coats of SURE STEP™ and buff to a beautiful shine with a SURE STEP BUFFING WHEEL™ on a portable drill.
Once your boat is properly protected, maintenance usually consists of keeping it clean by rinsing with clear water and wiping dry from time to time but if stuff happens, we’ve got you covered. If your boat gets soiled from greasy atmospheric fall out, diesel soot, scum line, or other nasties, wet it with water, spray on some free rinsing, biodegradable INFLATABLE BOAT CLEANER™, wash away the grime with a MARINE POWER MITT™ and wipe dry with a chamois or microfiber cloth.
Even though your boat bottom is protected with REPELIN™, if it sits in the water for more than a few days you may see slime forming on the bottom. Simply wipe off the slime and the bottom will stay clean for months. If the boat sits in the water for long periods of time, without maintenance, marine growth may attach. Soft growth such as slime and algae can be removed with INFLATABLE BOTTOM SPRAY™. Hard growth, such as barnacles or zebra or quagga mussels can be removed with FOUL OFF™. Bottom cleaners can remove REPELIN™ and POLY GUARD™. After removing the growth, scrub with SPEED CLEAN™ and re-apply POLY GUARD™ and REPELIN™.
POLY GUARD™, REPELIN™ and SURE STEP™ have a life of 6 to 8 months in continental climates and 3 to 4 months in tropical climates. At the end of each period, scrub all surfaces with SPEED CLEAN™ and re-apply the protectors. Regular use of these products can extend useful life of your new RIB or Inflatable Boat, make maintenance easier and add value and pride of ownership to your boat.
You will need 2 to 3 bottles of each, depending on the age and condition of the boat. If the boat is older or stained or has chalking or is quite dirty, you will need more. If the boat is quite new and in good condition, you will require less. I also suggest that you apply Sure Step to the non-skid deck to seal it, protect against UV, make it easier to keep clean and add traction.
Coverage of Poly Guard, Repelin and Sure Step is 200 ft².or 18.6 M². The amount of Speed Clean depends on the condition of the boat. It can be used to clean the tube as well as the fiberglass.
There are three basic types of material used for inflatable tubes today: Hypalon, PVC, PU, plus there are numerous hybrids that are appearing every year. All materials are excellent, depending on how and where you will use your boat. You will often hear that this material is far superior to that, based on peoples personal experience, but keep in mind that the fabrics used today are quite different than the fabrics used even 5 years ago. The mills are constantly improving their technology and manufacturers improving their techniques. Today’s Inflatable Boats and RIBs are quite amazing compared to boats that were made even 10 years ago.
The first trick is to locate the leak. The best way to do this is to mix a solution of detergent (dishwashing or liquid laundry detergent) with warm water, put it in an old spray bottle and spray the soapy solution on the boat in the suspected area. Watch the area closely for signs of bubbles. If the leak is very small, this could take some time and require patience as you work your way around the boat, but it’s the best way for DIY’s.
If an inflatable boat is in good shape, there should be no leaks and it should hold air. There are numerous causes for these slow leaks. Most can be corrected but in some cases, it’s just not worth while and you can either live with the leak or retire the boat.
The product is Repelin. Be sure to clean and prep the surface with Speed Clean and Poly Guard to protect your tubes and allow for patchability in the event of a puncture.
It works better in the north, where the water is not so warm and the growth so vicious. You will get a full season from two coats. In the Florida area, the bottom will start to slime up after about 3 to 4 weeks. Two coats should last 3 to 6 months if you keep it clean. If you leave it more than that, without wiping off the slime, you will start to get algae and barnacles attaching to the slime, but they are much easier to remove than if you do not protect your bottom.
If you have marine growth now, use Inflatable Bottom Spray to easily remove it without damaging the fabric or adhesives.
Before you can put anything on your inflatable, you have to make sure that it is clean, stain free and the surface is not oxidized.
If you have any fouling on the bottom, spray it with Inflatable Bottom Spray. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and that should get the fouling off. Next, use Speed Clean and a Marine Power Mitt, sponge or scrub brush to get the boat clean and deoxidized. This should get any stains out and bring up the original color. If you boat is a RIB, you can also use the Speed Clean on the hull and for cleaning the non-skid floor.
When your boat is as clean and bright as you can get it, apply 2 coats of Poly Guard to the tubes. If the boat is going to spend any amount of time in the water, apply 2 coats of Repelin below the waterline. You can use this on the tubes, rigid hull and the lower leg of you outboard. (Do not apply to the prop as it will cause it to slip too much). It will keep marine growth off and make it easier to clean. If yours is a RIB, apply 2 coats of Sure Step to the non-skid floor.
You’ll be amazed at how well these products restore your boat and make it easier to keep clean. Achilles made a good boat. When you get through, you might decide that it’s a keeper. I would even suggest that you take some before and after photos, otherwise no one will believe you.
