Cleaned the bilge today.....

Well, it was that time of year, time for the annual bilge clean, a job I really don't like much. Until it's done!

We bought this boat last spring and it had been impeccably maintained to the highest, and cleanest, standards but being the OCD boat freak that I am it was still not good enough and it had to be "my" clean.

Today I went to town, cleaning scrubbing and yes polishing the keel bolts. She's now ready for me to install the freshly re-finished cabin sole and new interior (Ultra-Suede) cushions. NO MORE boat odor!!

I must say she cleans up very well for a 29 year old 1979! The keel bolts CS used are clearly top quality and the gel-coated bilge, very nice feature, made cleaning a breeze!!!

So what's your weekend project????
