Caring For Lettering And Wraps On Boats

Shurhold Industries provides tips and tools to take care of fragile lettering and graphics on boats.

When cleaning graphics and wraps, polishers should be avoided. These harsh tools will degrade images and decrease their lifespan.

Shurhold's Serious Shine protects wraps from fading due to harmful UV rays. Owners just spray the lettering and graphics and wipe it on and off with a clean microfiber towel.

For help cleaning the gelcoat between the letters, Shurhold's Buff Magic is best. Formulated to be user friendly, this compound should be worked in by hand in these tight areas.

A 14 oz. aerosol can of Serious Shine retails for $17.98, while a 22 oz. tub of Buff Magic is $28.98.
