Full-line Mercury Dealer and Boat Care Tips

Full-line Mercury Dealer and Boat Care Tips

There is so much to talk about within the marine industry, and lots going on even right here at our shop. We are now a full-line Mercury dealer: from smaller two-strokes all the way up to the big Verado four-strokes. We are continuing to expand our technical education and training to provide the best possible service for this new opportunity and we hope you will find our parts, service and sales product knowledge growing every day to service your outboard needs.

As you may already know our technicians have gained the highest levels of training and certification available in servicing Yamaha, Evinrude, Honda and Suzuki, and will continue the same commitment to our newest product addition.

Commitment to product knowledge and customer service are our primary goal at Coastal Bend Marine and there are certain products that make our job easier. The Corrosion Technologies line comprises some of the products we depend on every day.

Corrosion X Red and Green have been staples in our service department for years and just recently we started carrying the full line of Corrosion Technologies products in our store. Let me share with you what I have found over the last month or so.

Corrosion X Rejex, originally developed for the aircraft industry, is a product I have believed for many years to be a great marine wax and have been recommending and selling it this way, but it is really much more. Rejex is not just a wax, it is like putting an impenetrable shield on surfaces you want to protect. Plexiglas, fiberglass, aluminum, plastic, painted metals, stainless steel – the list is long and I would like to provide a few examples.

On large boats where diesel soot collects on the transom near the engine exhaust ports, when Rejex is applied per instructions the soot does not stick, and any remnant will rinse away easily or when washed lightly with a soapy sponge. Corrosion Technologies has also developed Xhaust & Soot Remover to help clean seriously stained surfaces that have not been treated prior with Rejex.

It's love bug season! Cars and trucks, and boats towed on the highway, get splattered with bugs and this is another great way to use Rejex. Properly cleaned and applied, fiberglass, plastic windscreens and bright work will look as good as new with rinsing and light washing. You could spend hours trying to accomplish this without the help of Rejex.

Thank you to Corrosion X for your great products. Visit www.corrosionx.com to learn more, and stop by our store to purchase these great products.

Here's wishing you a happy and safe summer fishing and boating season.
