Boat Parts, Marine Hardware & Original Equipment
Maintaining a boat and all of its moving parts properly is critical to its performance and reliability. It also has a huge impact on how good the boat looks, which in turn affects resale value. That means regular cleaning, polishing, and possibly also painting of all your critical boat parts. Marine hardware is made up of so many different materials, you’ll need the appropriate assortment of boat care items. Fiberglass gel coat, marine vinyls, canvas, stainless steel, and all the other materials found on a boat require their own specifically formulated chemicals ranging from waxes to varnishes to polymer protectants. Likewise, when repairs or replacements are needed, you’ll have a decision to make: will you purchase new boat parts from an after-market retailer, or opt for original equipment directly from the builder or OEM (original equipment manufacturer)? Regardless of your decision, you’ll want to ensure that you’re always paying close attention to all of your marine hardware, and keeping your boat in tip-top condition.
