Hoods Up

In between the drama on Saturday we did manage to get a few bits done on the boat. The main job for the weekend had been to scrub up the canopies and remove the winters green from the seams and zips.

We decided to try something different to wash them with this year and it seems to have worked a treat. Daz hand wash powder. Who would have thought something so simple, and cheap, would work so well?

It has worked so well in fact that it is what we will be using from now on. We also treated them with some spray on mould remover which claims to keep mould growth at bay, but we shall have to see about that as we are not overly convinced it will do what it says on the tin.

We are busy this coming weekend but the next dry weekend that we get after that will be spent reproofing the canopies with some Fabsil to keep them nice and water tight which in itself helps to keep the green growth at bay. With this done they are then ready for the up coming year ahead. Thankfully this is only a once a year job.
