Cost-saving Boating Tip of the Day:
The "windows" in side curtains or biminis are often damaged by the metal tubes that hold up the structure. Star brite has a product, Clear Plastic Window Savers, which are plastic guards to put around the tubes where they impact the windows. This prevents burn marks to the window material by tubes that get hot from the sun and general abrasive damage. Replacing windows usually involves replacing all the side curtain and bimini materials, which can run into thousands of dollars that are needlessly spent. We'll be talking about vinyl and isenglass care in a future "Maintenance Monday" post, but feel free to call us at (239)776-4253 with any of your maintenance questions before then!
