    Default Care of 1941 Old Town Sportboat

    I recently purchased a restored 1941 Old Town Sportboat.
    I need advice in caring for the outside of the boat.
    Do I wax it or..?
    thanks in advance.

    No, ordinary soap and water for cleaning is fine. New paint will be necessary periodically. Wax can cause problems when you need to repaint it. Good luck

    Welcome to the Forum!
    Is this a canvas covered boat? Wax is for fiberglass boats, not wooden.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
