Maintaining an inflatable boat is essential to preserving its life and ensuring that it is always in the best condition for use. After each use, it is important to rinse the boat with fresh water and dry it completely before storing it. Additionally, perform a visual inspection of the boat for any signs of damage or wear, and be sure to check for any leaks. It is also important to use a protectant on the boat’s outer surface to keep it from fading or cracking from UV exposure. Periodically, check all the valves, seams, and air chambers for any signs of wear or damage. Finally, make sure to store the boat in a dry, sheltered location away from direct sunlight.
