Dog,

Thanks. regarding vinegar you are right it works very well (my wife uses it in the house as well). It's also dirt cheap! but I've used lemon oil on the boat. The smell it leaves behind is...Its the "right" smell for inside the boat. I'll look for this spray product as it may have a wider range of uses. The lemon oil I have comes in little bottles and of course is a little oily, and so the applications are limited.

Pluscard; I've had some spotting on the sails as well (we bought the boat with the spotty sails). It has been recommended to me not to try and wash the sails....almost anything you try will weaken the sail. I know it does'nt look good but I think you may have to live with it...

You are right about sailnet. I read a heck of a lot and learn from the wealth of experience from the group. For me it's also a lifeline and keeps me going till I get my boat back in the water.
