 Z Care LVP Marine Cleaner offer an innovative approach to cleaning all areas and surfaces on your boat.  The Marine Cleaner uses innovative formulation to protect the environment and the delicate surfaces on your boat.  Easy to use and very effective for cleaning canvas, vinyl, gel-coat, wood (natural and varnished), non-skid decks, hulls, rails, swim platforms and inflatables.  Wet the surface, spray it on, brush and rinse. Wipe down for a nice shine.

Z Care Mildew Cleaner offers a “Non Bleach” approach to removing mildew and controlling re-growth of this pesky growth in canvas, seat cushions and heads.  The Mildew Cleaner is Pine based and is very effective and pleasant to use. Most all other mildew cleaners are bleach based and not very pleasant to use.               

Z Care “Bioremedial” Bilge Cleaner is o 10 to 1 concentrate cleaner for the Bilge of your boat. Bioremediation is a process that uses microbes that “eat oil” resulting in a natural process that eliminates slicks, odor and the pollution resulting from a pump out from your bilge.  The process is you add the bilge concentrate directly into your bilge water or by adding a mixture of bilge cleaner and water to your bilge.  The process requires water, time and temperature.  Keeping a solution of the bilge cleaner and water in your bilge while operating your boat results in a clean and odor free bilge.

Adding the Z Care Bilge Concentrate to your bilge eliminates the slick from fuel or oil that is floating on top of the water in your bilge.  It adds a pleasant smell to your boat and eliminates the “Boat Smell” that results from the stale water normally found in the bilge of a boat.  If you keep a dry bilge and want to clean it, simply mix up enough bilge cleaner to “slosh around” in you bilge and take it on a trip.  After the cleaner has been in your bilge for a week or so, clean or pump it out and dry it for a clean and oil free bilge.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
