[email protected] Hello everyone, I last found the right boat. I ended up going with a 2007 Outback V : )
I ‘ve put about 10 hours on the gravy boat so far. I want to keep the home in great form at all times. Some little black rung thing about the size of the topple of a ball point peg got in the gravy boat somehow and created a small stain on one of the syntec cushions ( the endless try-and-keep-my-boat-clean saga begins ).
I was reading this printout I have on syntec stain removal and it suggests using family detergent to remove stains ( along with warm body of water ). What does everyone here use to keep your interior clean ? By family detergent do they mean Tide and such ?
If a mark is persistent, how street fighter is this corporeal ? Can it take some elbow greese with a leech ? Or will it deteriate ?
Thanks for any advice. So far I love the gravy boat. I went to look at a match Sangers on the direction to purchasing this one & they had 1/2 the features and were $ 10k more. I found the lapp to be dependable with most other boats besides.
Try a Mr CLean Magic Eraser …
I have had some parking draw stains end up on my seats ( tar/blacktop ) and have resorted to a very little sum of bug/tar remover. I always use another clean like 409 to clean the bug/tar remover.. not saying this is safe for material, equitable gets the dirt off.. follow up with some protectant .
Hello and welcome first.
The Vinyl is not Syntec, it is G & T Marine grade vinyl – very high quality stuff. however the manufacturer reccomends a few things to stay away from. Most are harsh family chemicals ( like 409 ! )
” Fantastik ” is allowed, though about impossible to find now.
Magic eraser is identical good, but can remove some of the protective layer of the vinyl.
I have had excellent results with Knights Marine Spray nine.

Amazing at cleaning, but very dependable.
Always wipe off anything you spray on the vinyl with water a few times then let dry and protect with 303 protectant.

Expensive, but everyone here will attest – worth every penny ! You can wax the boat with it, protect anything on the boat ( not the carpet obviously ), and feel secure it is doing the job.
Enjoy the play.

Buttafewcoe Wal-Mart still carries Fantastik … … at least around here
[email protected] JoeTechie, thanks for the advice. I ‘ll give those products a photograph. I noticed that Knights Spray Nine takes off sun-tan lotion, besides. I was wondering if sunday tan lotion will cause flaw or stain over prison term.
I ‘ll probably just wipe the vinyl down once a week or sol with the knights cleaner then follow up with 303 protectant.
gammapark What ever merchandise you decide to use on your seats I would recommend trying it out in an inconspicuous blemish inaugural in case it causes discoloration or some early emergence .

Fat G Rob, I posted a question about lake stains on the outside and Joe recommended the Spray Nine. I picked the Spray Nine Bottom Cleaner and the Vinyl Cleaner last workweek and used them this past weekend. It did an perplex job on both. The bottom clean is alot more toxic, but they did the job. Thanks Joe !
JoeTechie FYI – Use the basic atomizer nine clean on the bottom stains – no cuastic results and about as powerfull – possibly a few more rubs with a damp sponge but I ‘ve never has to use the bottomland cleaner and my hull gets filthy from petroleum and floating jetsum.
Rob – Suntan Lotion is very BAD for vinyl seats – sucks that we are all covered in the thrust and lounging around on them – but that is what 303 is for !
60 % of the clock time all I do is wipe down w/ damp sponge and then rub dry w/ a clean towell. The other 40 % is a promptly spray of marine nine, wait 10-30 seconds, wipe, then besotted sponge, and dry towel. somewhere in the doctor your principal gave you is a G & T fold out circuit board for care and how to clean off the nasties that are bad for vinyl. Dig around you ‘ll find it.
p.s. – Thanks go to Bob and Rob at Watersports Of Central Florida for telling me about the material !
[email protected] Thanks again for the advice. I ordered some spray nine from the site and picked up some 303 cleaner from a local marine store here.
I was cringing as my guests were globbing on tan lotion and sun block, though I ca n’t truly say ‘do n’t put any sunscreen or sun tan lotion on ‘. I suppose I ‘ll just clean the vinyl after each time out when sun tan lotion or sunday stuff is involved.
My boat is moored in urine, not on a lift. The dealer suggested I take the boat out every couple weeks and wash the hull to help prevent blistering. Does anyone suggest a detail hull clean ? I looked at quite a few at the local anesthetic marine store here, but many of them said they strip the wax off. acerate leaf to say I ‘m sure the wax is significant to have on the boat. Do I need to re-wax the hull after each clean ?
My owners manual packet came with a Syntec stain removal wallpaper saying the vinyl in my gravy boat is Syntec ‘s alkene fiber. The only suggestion for scavenge is ‘household detergent and quick water ‘ .
Rob – not sure about hull cleaners, but if try the Marine nine one first if the basic spray does not remove it all. Basic boat soap and a gravy boat brush work for me. Always try the least caustic and least abraisive solution first.
Waxing is very important, and I ‘d bet a hull clean would strip off the wax, so rewaxing would be needed – basic marine nine does not strip wax. A dear wax will keep the hull able to allow most dirt to jsut wash off esaily. I ca n’t imagine that a month in the water system will cause that much build-up.
Syntec makes the carpet, and it is Olifin, and should be cleaned according to the information you read. Vinyl is not olfin. and I silent think that G & T makes the vinyl ( though Syntec does make some ). I do know that the thread they use nowadays to sew the seats is olfin – I ‘d be concern in seeing what you are reading.
p.s. do n’t freak out on your boat patrons – they are not killing your gravy boat by laying around w/ suntan lotion – good try to use towels angstrom much as possible and stay away from that atomizer on tan lotion – that material is BANNED from my gravy boat. 303 is your slice of mind as well.
[email protected] I see, that tract is for the rug. I thought it was for the vinyl. Why do you ban the spray on gorge ? precisely because it gets everywhere ?
I noticed one of my guests using hawaiian tanning vegetable oil : hypertext transfer protocol : //www.drugstore.com/qxp16302_333181_sespider/hawaiian_tropic/dark_tanning_oil_original_moisturizing.htm on the boat. Do you happen to know if some tan oils are less dangerous than others ?
I ‘ll surely be putting a coat of 303 on the boat. Sounds like that is truly authoritative to do. As far as the hull, I bet boat soap and a brush will do the whoremaster. Cleaning the hull once every 2-4 weeks is more about removing lingering chemicals from the lake than removing marine establish growth or anything like that .
JesseC Why do you ban the spray on stuff ?
I besides require that the spray on material be used OUT of the boat. That stuff gets everywhere and some of the brands can actually discolor the vinyl. One of my friends sprayed on the lotion off of the boat and then immediatly jumped in the boat and sat polish. When he leaned forward, he had a red and colored grey chevron on his back from my vinyl. It did not hurt the boat, but it took him a while to get my seat pattern off of his back. I am certain if this happened enough it would finally show in the vinyl. I have n’t noticed this topic since using 303 on the vinyl .
[email protected] good to know. 303 will soon be my best ally I ‘m certain. I wonder if anyone has experience with one trade name of tanning vegetable oil being more vinyl friendly than the others ?
zabooda I ‘ve had suntan lotion stain the vinyl in two different places. I had to replace the vinyl in both cases. I ‘m not sure which lotions caused the problems. I just have people lather up and absorb the lotion into the skin before getting in the gravy boat .
JesseC It seems like my wife mentioned it containing an petroleum basis .
bobwells WD-40 is a great clean and is estimable for your seats, I spray my down & wipe off on a regular footing, it rightfully is good for vinyl it extends animation …
iaonbb Babe ‘s seat soap … unvoiced to find, order directly from their locate … merely amazing material ! highly recommend. Meguire ‘s vinyl protectant after that is the ultimate in my impression .
04OUTBACK WE have been using the continuous spray sunblock.. it is aerosol and NOT buttery … Does not seem to get everywhere … .
Sled491 303 is the best, a little goes a long direction. We use simple Green to clean the hull and exterior, is bio degradable and very effective as a wash solution and as a concnetrate for hood spots. not bad as a hard water mark remover either and does n’t remove wax.
Can sympathize with build up when leaving boat in water system, years ago before we had a lift we used to get about 1/4 edge of scum every 6 wks or indeed on the bottom of our boat. Would take an acerb to remove, very nasty job : evil :
JoeTechie I LOVE simpleton greens, but I found it does strip wax to some degree, and leaves a movie on about all surfaces that attracts soil. Best stuff for degreasing garage floors, car wheels, cleanup of anything nasty, but safe around kids and flush pets to a large degree. But I am tire of using it on the Moomba.
