new boat-scratches in passanger seat already....


Recommended Posts

my buddy wears wake skate(?) shoes and leaves them on in boat after skating. seems they put somewhat permanent scratches on passanger seat only as other gear(boards) get no where near. maybe it is the laces on shoes? not sure. i use the standard vinyl cleaner(meguier) and they are 50% better but very noticable still. wife says use a paper towel dry? i heard wd40? but hesitate to use WD till all else fails. seats are white. help

Rule #1: NO SHOES IN THE BOAT! I don't care what kind they are.

I've had good luck with the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Read about them first on here. They've taken out most of the scuff marks on my interior, although if the vinyl itself is damaged rather than just having a mark on it the only thing you can do is try to lighten it as much as possible so it won't be as noticeable. Good Luck.

a lot of stains will go away with time, the sun must have something to do with it

On the scuffs, we use (Sparingly) 3M adhesive remover

No shoes in the boat and ESPECIALLY not on the seats! You don't stand on the seats of a Porsche convertible do you?

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and elbow grease goes a long way to removing scuffs. Most stains disappear in the sun after a day or so.

watch out for bikini tops too (new rule, no tops allowed in our boat!!). One of our passenger's bikini clasp actually several really small holes in the flip up portion of the passenger seat.

I think in my boat properly earned neck beads are entirely allowed and appropriate.
