Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?
Maybe some posters from saltwater locations can chime in on whether they deal with this as well?
Can't say we have any kind of significant spider issue, very occasional much as we might see at home.
Thinking back, though, for some years we moored in an old river estuary that was quite brackish, with a larger nearby river laying on a fresh water 'layer' over the sea water for much of the year. While I don't remember chasing spiders, I do recall seemingly indestructable 'free telltales' in the form of spider webs all up and down the rig - so presumably spiders were around.
Haven't noticed the rigging webs so much since we moved to a saltier marina..
