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

I always assumed it's a freshwater/saltwater thing. Ours is brackish but more fresh than salt, and we definitely get spiders. OP's location in Oriental is similar but probably a little more salty since it's closer to the coast. Seems like a few days out on the coast in saltwater usually clears them out, but it could be that's just because we're on the boat and sailing.

Maybe some posters from saltwater locations can chime in on whether they deal with this as well?
