Rubber and other materials are also laid on the deck to extend the service life. If there are scratches and deep scratches or resin peeling off, they must be repaired in time.

Long-term exposure to the sun is very detrimental to the hull, it will accelerate the aging of the glass fiber reinforced plastic yacht, and the hull color will also be affected. Therefore, it is best to have shading facilities in the parking place.

Clean the yacht frequently and remove the salt and frost in time

Various minerals or pollutants in the ocean can cause damage to the hull. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the yacht frequently. When cleaning, use ordinary household cleaners, not strong acids and alkalis. After washing, rinse with clean water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. If the hull has salt crystals, it should be removed in time to prevent the aging of FRP.

Wax regularly and apply paint in time

Waxing is also a kind of protection for the hull, similar to wearing a protective suit on the hull.
