Boating is evolving into an electronic heaven, while we love the connectivity and usability it has given us, the combination of salt water and sunlight are brutal with regards to maintaining electronic devices and systems.


Boats being in the water are open to corrosive elements. To slow this process down, detailing helps protect the outer surface, subsequently lengthening its life cycle and did we mention it looks awesome when finished! Boat detailing is an important part of your overall craft maintenance that should not be neglected.


How often should you look at getting an antifoul done? Depending on your vessel, it’s good to consider booking your boat in every 9 to 15 months. What many people misunderstand is that even though you may not physically see reasons to book your boat in for an antifoul or anode replacement, if not done frequently enough you many run into issues down the track, which you could have prevented simply by getting this service done more frequently.
