TIPS FOR A WELL LOVED BOAT

We included these tips before, but just as a refresher, here are our top tips to keep your AGB boats in top shape.
  1. Remove the floor boards, center seat and the seat backs from the boat. Wash the boat, inside and out, with warm water and Dawn for Dishes. Give the boat a coating of good liquid wax and buff it off.
  2. Refresh the natural Cherry trim with a deep penetrating oil. If the wood is looking a bit gray, turn your boat upside down and tape the shear of the hull to protect the finish and then very lightly sand the wood.   Sanding will remove most of the blemishes that occur in normal use.
  3. Wearing gloves and using a clean cotton cloth, apply a coating of teak oil and let it soak in for a few minutes then buff it. Turn the boat right side up and lightly sand and oil the gunnel trim.  You can use the teak oil on the cane seats too.
That’s really all it takes to bring that sparkle and shine back to your boat. By the way, if you oil the Cherry on your boat a few times a year, it will always shine like new.

  1. Out of curiosity, how much does a 15′ Guideboat weigh? Can one man transport it about 1/4 mile on a path through the woods?
    Thanks.
    Good health.

      You can portage the boats with a boat dolly. We are starting to offer a lighter-weight guide boat that easier to carry. If you want to call my cell 802-793-3285 I can tell you all about it.

      Thanks,
