Boat washing

The way I cruise, the only fresh water bath my boat ever gets is when nature provides.
Between those times, itís only salt water and a product made up here in Maine called Incredible Pink. It seems to clean very good.
Should I be more concerned about no fresh water rinse?

Re: Boat washing

Your avatar doesn't say what kind of boat you have. If she is timber, washing her with salt water is actually beneficial, and if she is GRP, no, it will not hurt. Our boat, too, is washed when the weather gods give us rain.

Who scorns the calm has forgotten the storm.
