zz4gta - I used mineral spirits to dissolve the heavy grease covering on the winch parts and then a big gust of wind sprayed the contents across the cockpit. I spent most of yesterday cleaning the cockpit (more mineral spirits, rubbing compound and wax) - I would rather have done something else.
At least tonight I'll have company aboard for drinks and a movie - my anchorage neighbours from Arita
and Ti Kanot
. I haven't used my TV set on this trip so I'll check it out now to see if it still works.
