Re: Cleaning Hull in the water

Several times a summer I get out a little early for a race and offer two scrubbing pads to a couple of my young fit crew members. In about 15 minutes the hull and keel and rudder are spotless. I tie a couple of lines at the forward and aft cleats along each side to give them some thing to hang on to, which makes it easier for them.

I am in fresh water so use VC- 17 which is hard and does not come off easily and every year at haul out I have a nice clean bottom.
