Re: Polishing pulpit and standing rigging

This flitz is actually doing an amazing job. The forestay where I polished glistened like new wire in the sunset. The part I couldn't reach did not.

The boat I just got had these old plastic, somewhat tight fitting plastic covers on the shrouds, with bigger plastic rollers on the bottom. So I cracked and peele them off and will work on the shrouds tomorrow. They have a bit of hmm.. Green fuzz in them tht I will have to brush out.

I wish standing Rigging was an easier job, I would always replace it, but it seems that it and the deck hardware, I.e. the blocks, tackle etc get left the longest. A rope you can replace here or there, but really the standing its all at once.
