Quick Tip: Easy Cowl Care for Outboards

Keep your outboard motor's cowl looking new with these simple steps.

How-To

Step 1

Wipe down the cowl with a damp cloth to remove water spots and dirt.

Step 2

Using a clean, dry cloth, continue to wipe the cowl removing any dampness.

Step 3

Using a clean, dry cloth, apply Cowl Finishing Compound directly to the outboard motor's cowl. Paying particular attention to any scratches, rub the compound in a circular motion evenly across the surface. To avoid the compound drying too quickly, do not apply in direct sunlight.

Step 4

Similar to car wax, let the compound set up and dry.

Step 5

When the compound is dry, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the compound off the cowl.

Following these simple steps, your outboard motor cowl will look just like it did the day you brought it home from the dealership! Watch the video below for the tutorial.
