After each use, rinse your boat to help prevent stains, growth, and aquatic hitchhikers.

Our dinghies require some maintenance that will lengthen your boat’s life and reduce future maintenance. When rinsing the dinghy, pay extra attention to the seams along the floorboards or the air floor. You may partially deflate your boat to remove your floorboards. This will help you access the crevice between the tube and the floor of your boat. Cleaning this area reduces mildew and grime. 

Elevating your boat will help you rinse the boat off more quickly. This allows all the water to run down to the transom leaving dirty water in one area. You can lean the boat over and spray the boat gently with a hose to get the remnants out of your vessel.
