Re: Engine oil stains on deck gelgoat

You have sinned! Mentioned spider poop! AAGGHHH! Hate spider & bird poop!

I used to think that if you kept your boat properly waxed that you would not suffer from these maladies. Now i know better. I am overrun with spiders and barn swallows. I can deal with spiders to some degree. I've had to use "Home Defense" as a perimeter on the boat to keep most out as my daughter blows up like a balloon when bitten.
The barn swallows, well, until they let me use the shot gun i'll have to deal with cleaning daily. I have about/roughly 30 birds that live on my boat all day. This is how i know so much about soft-scrub with bleach as i go through a bottle a week. It's the only way i can make the boat sanitary to sit on. Hopefully the marina will address the issue before they get back in the spring.
