Re: Washing sails

I don't think the answer is simple. It's a good idea to rinse off salt water, but rain isn't going to wash much else off a sail. Then the question is how you dry it off before furling or bagging. Putting it away wet might become a mildew farm, if left that way for a lengthy time.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
