Bimini Maintenance and Safety Tips all Boat Owners Should Know

So you bought a boat with a bimini – Congratulations! At Buxton Marine – the #1 boat dealer in North Texas – we are excited for you to spend good times ahead on the lake with your friends and family. 

And now that you’re a proud owner of that bimini, the service department here at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas as a few tips on how to maintain and operate your bimini for long-lasting fun:

Bimini Maintenance

Extend the life of your bimini and enjoy it for years to come with these simple bimini maintenance tips:

  • Washing the Bimini: Remove any debris from the bimini as soon as you notice it. A couple times a season (and for sure at the end of the season), give the bimini a good bath using lukewarm water and soap. Biminis should always be hand-washed and then air dried to retain shape and size. 
  • Check the Fittings: Before hitting the lake, make it a habit of inspecting the bimini fittings to make sure they are good and tight. If you notice any loose or broken screws, screw them back down immediately or replace. You’ll also want to do the same inspection of the hold-down straps.
  • Stow When Not in Use: By stowing the bimini when trailering or not in use, you are reducing the chance of unnecessary warping or rips that can reduce the life of your bimini.

Bimini Boat Safety Precautions

Biminis are great – if you operate correctly! Follow these guidelines for safety when using biminis on the lake:

  • Know the Wind Speed: High winds and biminis don’t mix. If the wind is strong, store the bimini for another day.
  • Test for Max Speed: After installing the bimini, give the boat a little gas and see how it performs. Watch for any fittings or straps that are loose and flapping, and do not operate until they are fixed. Also – watch for the speed at which the bimini flaps so much that it isn’t safe, and either stay below that speed or stow at that speed.
  • Handle the Bimini with Care: Carelessness when towing can cause unnecessary damage to your bimini. Be sure to follow guidelines for storage to make sure unsightly rips do not occur. 

We hope these bimini maintenance and safety tips were helpful to you today as you prepare for another great season on the lake!

How to Remove Mold & Mildew from Boat Seats

You’ve stored your boat for the winter, careful to make sure it’s clean and ready for the Spring, only to revisit the boat a few months later and find that the seats and upholstery are covered in mold and mildew. 

It’s the last thing a boat owner wants to see, but the good news is that it can be removed. Here are a few tips from Buxton Marine on how to remove mold and mildew from boat seats, should the issue ever arise in your boat:

Step 1: Have the Right Cleaner

Many boat owners will use a mild soap – like dish soap – first to see if it removes the mold and mildew. Sadly, it rarely does, so skip the effort and go with something stronger. Your next thought – go with bleach! While bleach will be effective in removing the mold and mildew, it is likely gong to wreck havoc on your beautiful seats, breaking down or discoloring the vinyl. Let’s not do that. 

So what do you use?

Get a bottle of specially formulated mold and mildew remover that is made for boat interiors. This bottle of magic will get the job done and leave your boat intact! If you need help finding the right boat mildew remover, call us at Buxton Marine and our experts can help.

Step 2: Apply Vinyl Protectant Twice Yearly

Schedule to apply vinyl protectant with other seasonal boat maintenance. This will help prevent the growth of mold and mildew in the first place. Warm weather, humidity, and temperature swings are all known to promote mildew growth, and chances are if you have a boat in Texas, you’re not going to be able to avoid these factors!

Our staff is always here, expertly trained to help with all your boating needs. It’s just one of the reasons we are the best boat dealer in North Texas
