Recreational boats exist in a much more stable environment
than airliners. They are (generally) near sea level and usually in reasonably
constant temperatures, but rarely do they enjoy the benefit of being "post-finished"
with some of the world's mostexotic paints as in the case of an airliner.
Even a post-finished, beautifully painted yacht, however will benefit
substantially from Amazing Glaze and add years to its paint life.Fiberglass
boats, on the other hand are pre-finished with specially prepared marine
gel coat; a blend of the same type of laminating resin that the boat is
made up of, but with color pigment added to it. This gel coat, (by comparison
to airline or automotive paints) is porous, oxidizes quickly when exposed
to ultra violet rays of the sun, and is subject to a high degree of degradation
from the intense sunshine, bird droppings, acid rain and also the "scouring"
effect of dried-on salt spray which shortly turns to the same (but much
finer) crystalline state that we see in cooking salt.Applications of Amazing
Glaze at reasonable intervals (depending on the combination of the
owner's use and/or geographical location) can and will enhance the beauty
of any boat and will protect the gel coat or painted finished from premature
degradation as described above. It will make your boat far easier to clean
with a quick fresh-water rinse after use whenever possible and help greatly
in maintaining the highest re-sale or trade in value of the boat when
and if that time should come.Also, a boat that is kept in prime condition
will yield better resale value if sold by the owner, or will be much easier
for the dealer to re-sell as an "experienced boat" to the used
boat buyer, than if it were not so well maintained.To take full advantage
of the Amazing Glaze Protection Program, boat owners should have an annual
re-application of the Glaze. This is because UV inhibitors that guard
against the degrading effects of the sun are self sacrificing. UV protection
will eventually ware out and should be renewed.
