The problem is it really needs a spell of decent - read not hot/cold/wet weather to plan in the clean so looking forward last week I plotted in a days fishing with friends then today (Thursday 29th) a trip to the boat for a clean.
Before cleaning I spent a good hour on all the door and hatch hinges using WD40 and 3 in 1 to free them up as they had not been used much recently. I did not want to clean then spoilt the look with dribbles of oil on the boat. All freed up I set to with water literally on tap (what a luxury) that made the job easier and cleaner.
Only problem giving the boat a clean you see all the little rust spots - I need to read up on how best to tackle them.....another good reason to spend more time on the boat.
Five hours later she looks much tidier. I wanted to give the paint a polish but ran out of time so will do that hopefully in the dry dock or back on the mooring in a few weeks.
