Re: Shore power line "sticky"

I tried most everything on our sticky power cable with little effect. One winter though I started just scraping the sticky part off using a straight edge and then cleaned it up with a 3M pad. It's not as yellow as it was, but it isn't sticky. We don't leave our cable out anymore--solar takes care of the batteries generally--but when I do haul it out it doesn't leave marks all over the boat like it used to.
