Boaters cure-all for zippers and spring commissioning tips from BoatUS
by D. Scott Croft on 16 Apr
Getting corroded boat canvas zippers to work smoothly by using two common kitchen items has never been so popular, according to Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS). The national boating advocacy, services and safety group announced today the number one most widely viewed online “BoatTECH” how-to-fix-it tip this spring is author Don’s Casey’s simple saran wrap and vinegar repair.
A quick fix for corroded zippers is popular with boaters this time of year, says BoatUS. D. Scott Croft
“The high interest is driven by the annual rite of spring commissioning,” said BoatUS Vice President of Public Affairs Scott Croft. “Boaters across America are beginning to put all of the canvas biminis, sun shades, clear vinyl windows and camping canvas back on the boat for the season, and we all get frustrated by jammed-up zippers.”
The series of online how-to BoatTECH subjects at BoatUS.com/boattech can help boaters plan spring-commissioning projects or upgrades, from putting on bottom paint, replacing an impeller or performing sterndrive maintenance, to the more complicated installing an inverter or adding air conditioning. BoatTECH features are authored by top experts in their field as well as the editors of BoatUS Magazine.
