.... and we have earnt it having washed and polished all but the port side of the boat today 18th June.
We arrived yesterday and cleaned the inside, or rather rachel did while I drove back to Eccleshall for food. ( I did clean the cottage the day before so we we will go back to a clean cottage - but I have a reason for that.... more on the blog later !)
So cleaned inside, provisioned and all but one side outside cleaned for the summer we set off to wind and moor up away from the mooring. We are on the Knighton visitor moorings for the night and will be back on the mooring with the port side to land so we can finish the boat external clean. It's given heavy rain Sunday so that'll be a cabin ( reading and relaxing day)
Below is the difference between a wash with car shampoo and the sacrificial wax we applied. It brings up the paint but critically provides that barrier to bird poo and acid rain.
