Fellow boaters, its spring, which means it is time to get the boat ready for summer. First off, I understand parts of the country have been taking the boat out all winter long. Humor me here okay, us Midwesterners are not quite as fortunate as you all. Now let us get this out of the way, cleaning off the boat after a long winter of it sitting around getting filthy both inside and out is not an enjoyable task, but unfortunately it is necessary. And yes, us recreational boaters are always finding ways to bypass deep cleaning, but ultimately if you want to enjoy the boat this summer it is better to rip the band-aid off now.
