YACHT MAINTENANCE TIPS - THE RENSKIB SYSTEM
1. Rinse the vessel off once ashore. Remove all “old” wax and protection layers by using our R110 Gel Coat Cleaner and/or R100 Yellow Stain and Barnacle remover. The latter is an acid that softens the calcium so that it comes off easily. Now the yacht is ready for polishing.
2. Seriously matted surfaces shall be polished by applying the R120 Rubbing Compound. This is a 6000 grain liguid polishing paste. This product is polished by using a machine with a vilt pad.
3. Now the hull and/or the superstructure shall be polished with the fine Renskib R130-A liguid pre-sealer. This is a 8000 grain polisher. The gelcoat will now regain its shiny and smooth surface.
4. Clean the teak with the Renskib R125 Teak Cleaner. This product removes all organisms and dirt from the teak and freshens up the wood. By brushing the teak in circles the treatment will also remove all the “dead” wood from the deck. It is important to keep the deck wet at all times.
5. After the hull and/or the superstructure, and the teak is cleaned, wash the boat with the Renskib R140 Shampoo. This will remove any remains of the polishing and teak cleaning so that the final sealing can commence and will stick well to the to be treated surfaces.
6. Now all polished gel coat and/or 2 components treated surfaces shall be sealed by applying the Renskib R130-B Sealer. Apply the sealer by using a damp sponge, let it dry up for just a few minutes and polish it out by using a multi-fiber cloth. This final treatment gives the boat a deep ceramic gloss and protects the treated surfaces against the influences of sunlight. The product is also a non-sticking agent so that dirt will not attach to the actual surface. The product is free of any silicons or teflon combinations.
The routine maintenance will now be very easy and fast by only using the Renskib R140 Shampoo. This will only enhance the result of steps 1 to 6.
