After an enjoyable day on the water your Extreme will need a good wash to help keep it looking great and going well for years to come. After unloading the catch and gear, remove the bilge bung and underfloor storage bin bung and give everything a good wash down with fresh water which will loosen any salt, followed by a washdown with an appropriate boat wash. Avoid using household products as they can be highly Alkaline, and look for a low PH soap such as AWL wash, Meguiars Flagship, Crystal Boat Soap to name a few.
Ensure to use a soft bristled brush or wash mitt and rinse as you go to wash all the sudds away. Avoid scrubbing the corner perspex windows and just rinse with the hose and wipe down later with a microfibre cloth and suitable cleaner such as Vuplex. It is also important to give the inside of the cabin a good wipe down as a lot of salt can still end up inside the cabin after a windy day on the water.
Check with your local dealer regarding the best practices for flushing your outboard. After everything is washed down ensure the battery isolation switch is OFF, and the boat is stored as level as possible with the bow slightly up. It is very important to NEVER store your boat full of petrol due to gas expansion in the tank that can occur on warmer days. We also recommend that you remove the buoyancy bungs in the transom to let the buoyancy chambers breath and also check that there is NO water in them.
