Rowing boats used for racing are subject to regular use, wear and tear. To help maintain your rowing fleet and help preserve the life of the rowing boats, it’s critical to keep them clean from effects of the water, sun, and regular use.
Rowing fleets should be cleaned regularly – this includes not only the boat hull the seats and runners inside the boat. Boat cleaners used should be environmentally friendly boat cleaning products that won’t cause harm to the water and are gentler on the boat. Both regular cleaning and waxing rowing fleets is important for on-going maintenance.
With budget constraints, it’s important to try to preserve your rowing fleet as long as possible. Regular maintenance can add years to the life of a rowing boat.
