Re: Cleaning Metal and Stainless Anything fast?

Flitz and a buff ball on a drill for chrome that's not heavily pitted.

Anything you can unbolt and take on the dock an SOS pad will work wonders, but not onboard. Any small flakes off the pad will leave rust spots on deck.

I seem to remember someone posting about using bronze wool on board instead of steel wool. I haven't tried it but it makes sense.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
