A Clean, Odor-free Bilge is Easy With Boatlife

Bilge Cleaner

Dec 19, 2019

One of the most important boat-ownership tasks is cleaning the bilge. Not only does it reduce noxious interior odors, but also eliminates a Coast Guard officer visit for unintentionally discharging oily waste. Bilge Cleaner from BoatLIFE quickly and effortlessly emulsifies oil and scum, leaving the vessel smelling fresh and new.

Made in the USA, non-foaming Bilge Cleaner works without phosphates. Water-based, the biodegradable formula is so safe, it can be used in fish and bait wells.

Few maintenance tasks are as easy as using BoatLIFE Bilge Cleaner. Poured into the bilge, it’s left to sit—no scrubbing is needed. If there is accumulated scum and oily residue, it can be wiped up, pumped into a container or drained when the boat is out of the water. This is so the runoff can safely and legally be discarded to protect the environment.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
