Boat LIFE *New Formula* Boat Cleaner

Boat LIFE Boat Cleaner

Many boat soaps rely on chemicals so harsh, they end up stripping wax from your boat and are toxic to aquatic life. BoatLIFE has

redeveloped its boat cleaner as an eco-friendly formula that won’t remove wax or other protectants. Extraordinarily tough on dirt

and grime, it gets the job done without the use of harsh chemicals. BoatLIFE’s Boat Cleaner can quickly clean gelcoat, clear coat,

painted surfaces, varnished surfaces, marine canvas and sailcloth. Highly concentrated, only a mere 2 to 4 ounces is needed per

gallon of water. For tougher jobs the amount of concentrate can be doubled or even mixed one to one with salt or fresh water.

Apply with a sponge, brush or towel. Scrub surface, then thoroughly rinse for a spot-free finish. Made in the USA.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
