Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

It seems to be regional (or continental). On Lake Ontario the spider battle seems constant. We left our boat for months at docks in Australia and South Africa and on a mooring in Ecuador for a month and nary a spider (probably a particularly good thing in Oz where they have all the dangerous 8-leggers. In fact I can't think we ever had a spider on board in 33,000 miles. I guess they know I had spider spray onboard.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
