summer s

recently i got my first inflatable fishing boat , after a lot of research on how to maintain the boat , i got some results. here are the follows. also i want to know is there any other suggestions about it? really thank you !

First of all, clean the inflatable boats with fresh water. If there are fuel stains, washing powder may be applied. And then, wipe and dry the boat. Fold and place the boat into the storage. If there is much space, it would be better to release a little bit air pressure and lay it flatly. If it will be used soon, wash and then store it in cool areas.

Disassembly

Attention: the boat should be clean and dry
1. Open all valves and turn the core clockwise to lock them.
2. Remove the seats and floor boards
3. Release all air from the tubes
4. Fold the sides into the centre and bow onto the stern
5 Store it in clean and dry areas. Beware of puppies scratching the boat


Cleaning

All inflatable boats (rafts) can be cleaned by soap and fresh water. PVC coats have an anit-UV finish during production.
Attention: Never use vinyl solvent, chemicals, chlorine-containing cleansers and gasoline to clean the boat
Spraying anti-UV solvent once half a year can improve the inflatable boat’s life time


Storage

Clean the boat and other equipment with neutral solvent and fresh water after use. Pack all dried parts into a bag so as to avoid mold.

Check the other parts against damages or wears. Repair scratches or wears with boat vanish.

In an attempt to make the boat looks brighter, store it in cool areas and avoid the Sun.

Attention! Wax and alcohol-based cleaners cannot apply on the coat.

Do not place heavy objects on the boat

Well, the way I see it is you've got a couple of choices;

1/ follow the instructions you already have.

2/ don't follow the instructions you already have.

Pretty simple really..........
