Membership in Boat US Has Its Benefits

boat us logo vertical

How beneficial is a BoatUS membership for sailors? Well, we found out just how valuable a service that is while sailing in the Chesapeake Bay with our friends on their catamaran. We were nearing the Bay Bridge, motoring back to AnnapolisBoat US (there was no wind) when suddenly both his engines failed. After much cursing, diagnostics and antics, we gave up.

Bob had no way to get the catamaran back to a safe harbor and was slowly drifting towards the Bay bridge. We maneuvered him to a safe spot, threw down the anchor and called his TowboatUS Service. It was as easy as that! They were there within the hour and towed him safely back to Annapolis. We were sold and decided to become members.

Clean Boat Multi-Purpose Cleaner

Our friends at Clean Boats have a multi-purpose cleaning solution to remove stains, cut grease, eliminate mold, and pretty much uncover your boat's beautiful shiny surfaces. The flexible cleaner works on all surfaces including gel-coat, teak, glass, leather, leatherette or naughahyde, stainless steel, bronze, aluminium, hypalon/inflatable craft fabric, sails, and more. Pretty much any surface on your boat can be free of stains, grease, and dirt. Even crystalization from marine salts disappear from your deck, sails, and engine.

Plus the clean shine lasts longer after cleaning with Clean Boat because it leaves a protective waterproofing coat that does not damage or interfere with any anti-UV protectant coatings or joint sealants.

Read on to see a video of the Clean Boat solution in action.
