Marine Board: The Perfect Material for Boat Repairs

As the fall season approaches, it’s time to start thinking about winterizing your boat. This important process helps to protect your investment from the harsh elements of winter and ensures that it’s in good condition when you’re ready to hit the water again in the spring. 

Boat owners are aware of the list of things that should be completed each fall, which may include tasks like: 

  • Changing the fuel filter;
  • Replacing the oil filter;
  • Checking hoses for cracks or soft spots;
  • Greasing the prop shaft and threads;
  • Checking belts;
  • Topping off coolants.

In addition to these tasks, fall is the perfect time to make repairs. 

Marine Board: A Durable and Versatile Material for Boat Repairs

Investing in the right products will reduce the number of yearly repairs that need to be done on any boat. Marine Board, a type of sheeting, is made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) a thermoplastic polymer made from petroleum. In the home, many materials are made from HDPE, like cutting boards, toys, and detergent bottles. 

HDPE is waterproof, resistant to mildew, UV rays, and chemicals, and is of no interest to insects. It won’t crack or splinter, even when exposed to fresh or salt water. A highly versatile material, Marine Board has a large number of applications. This sheeting is commonly used to make: 

  • Cabinets;
  • Electrical Boxes;
  • Tables;
  • Sink Covers;
  • Bait Boards;
  • Bait Wells;
  • Showers;
  • Hatch Covers;
  • Seating.

Low-maintenance, marine board only requires the occasional cleaning and a yearly check for damage!
