 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.

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
