Imagine the state of your skin if you spent your days lolling on the water with no protection, fully exposed to the elements. Wind, rain, salt, UV rays. That’s what most boats endure on the Sydney waters, 365 days a year. Like your skin, a little preventative care goes a long way.
Start with the windows. A tint protects the glass, reduces the glare when you’re driving the boat and prevents harmful rays entering the boat’s interior to damage vulnerable soft furnishings. Enjoying that enviable sheen on your weekend toy can take hours of soap, polish and elbow grease – made much easier with the adoption of a simple coat of Permanon. Unique Tinting is the Australian authorised reseller of this Boeing-certified paint protection product, which is gaining popularity amongst Sydney’s boating community, who realise that spending time in your boat is more fun than spending time on your boat.
Finish your Slip Slip Slap campaign on your interiors. Leather is a popular option for boat upholstery – and for good reason. With care, its high initial cost is more than justified by ease of care and longevity. Start by adding protective coating and you’re ahead of the game; seek professional advice promptly if you do have a spill or see salt or moisture damage developing and you can get your leather surfaces back on track.
