Tube Cleaning

We just bought our first rib 3 weeks ago. She is a 6.8M Ribcraft Offshore with a 170 HP Inboard Volvo engine. She is 7 years old and in really good condition, kept under cover the whole time not in use. We want to keep her in the same condition and we dont know what the best thing to use to clean and maintain the tubes. Any suggestions much appreciated. Ta Frank

Hi Frankie. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new purchase!

Try doing a search on 'tube cleaning' using the Search tool on the forum. This has been discussed a few times before. HTH.

Edit: please post some piccies of your boat. You could post them in a thread in the Gallery titled 'Lets see ya boat then' or you could start a new thread there.

Tube Cleaning

Thanks for the info. Looked through all the articles on tube cleaning, it seems 303 is the stuff to use. What particular one is the best to use for cleaning and whats best for protection. They have lots of cleaning products available, wanna make sure I get the right one. Ta
