Scrubbing The Deck
Took a stiff brush and some boat soap to the cockpit. Had to really scrub to get the caked on dirt off. Again the pressure washer will do better. Removed the cockpit floor to clean around the lip of the floor. Lots of dirt had built up there. Took some adhesive remover to some oil sludge that was spilled on the port side of the hull. While it was loosened up, the gelcoat is so oxidized that I ended up just smearing some brown stain around the hull. Oh well, she will have to be painted anyway.
