Wearlon: The Easiest Boat Maintenence Ever?

It’s been almost a week since the Labour Day long weekend, what is traditionally seen as summer’s “last gasp.” One staple of summer for many people is boating. Boating can be one of the best and most memorable parts of your summer experience…And one of the most expensive. Think of the fuel costs, equipment required (such as a trailer) and extra gas spent lugging that boat around.

One of the most expensive parts is maintenence: boat owners have to deal with a lot! Corrosion, abrasion, and the growth of drag-inducing marine life and sludge on the hull. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize your external maintenence to the hull.

Redwood Plastics distributes a spray/paint on liner called “Wearlon Speed Coat-49.” It is extremely simple to apply. No primer is required, can be sprayed or brushed, and is environmentally-friendly. Unlike many other coatings, Wearlon adheres easily to all major contact surfaces: plastic, metal, and wood.

Wearlong Speed Coat-49 is very corrosion resistant, provides reduced drag (fuel savings!), and usually requires only one application. Lastly, Wearlon cures at room temperature and doesn’t require complex heat curing activities or equipment. 

So there you go, likely the simplest “how to” blog you could have! Get under your boat, paint it on, give it some time, and you’re good to get back on the water. Sadly, Fall is the season we need to start thinking about packing the boat away for winter. Why not take the time to do some late-season maintenence to ensure boating season 2013 is one to remember?
