A Little Work Now Will Pay Off Later

Winterize with Encore Mildew Stain PreventerHere in the South, many of us are often in denial about preparing our boats for the cold, wet winter months.  We are always hopeful we can get one last run through the slalom course or one more sunset cruise in.  If we aren’t careful, fall will quickly turn to winter and we will not have taken proper care of our beloved water crafts. Maybe this scenario sounds familiar:

A few beautiful and unseasonably warm days last fall called you out on the water.  You took the boat out and enjoyed the warm breeze and sunshine. A few weeks passed, Thanksgiving and then Christmas came.  Before you knew it, you were frantically doing a quick work over of your boat, preparing her for storage and keeping your fingers crossed that she would make it through the winter.

The cold of January and February soon led to warmer days in March and April.  The lake began to call your name.  You decided to scratch that Spring Fever itch with a trip out on the water only to find that that fun trip will have to be postponed.  You uncovered your boat to find it completely filthy. The seats were stained by mildew.  Mold was hiding in the storage compartments and around the engine. The excitement of spring gave way to discouragement.  The lake would have to wait…

The bad news is that mold and mildew do happen.  Our boats get dirty, tear up and can sometimes require a lot of money and time to fix.  Unfortunately, this is a part of life that we all have to deal with.  BUT there is good news!  Encore Coatings has worked for years to develop safe and reliable products that can help make your life a little easier.  This year, as you get ready to winterize your boat and put it away for a few months, Encore has the perfect product that will keep your boat as good as new.  Your disappointments will give way to relief and joy when you see that your boat is ready to go come spring.

stop mold and mildewThe one product you need to use on your boat this fall is Encore Coatings’ MSP (Mold Stain Preventer).  MSP is a spray on product that works behind the scenes to help prevent mold and mildew from damaging surfaces that are exposed to the elements.  MSP works on vinyl and fabric coverings, perfect for the seats, flooring, and storage compartments in boats.  Applying MSP can add an extra layer of protection to your boat, keeping it good as new and ready for the water when the days are warm again.

At Encore, we understand your time is limited, so we have taken the opportunity to prepare a video showing you how to apply MSP to your boat.  Take a few minutes to watch this quick video and please call on us if you have any questions.  We look forward to hearing from you!
