Rig cleaner

It's just a clamp to go around a rag that has some cleaner on it . Attach a halyard and a downhaul . Yes you have to get in the chair to get above the spreaders .

Re: Rig cleaner

Man!...If I lived in a house instead of a sailboat you'd have me scrubbing out my mailbox! It's just not going to happen!

Re: Rig cleaner

Oh yes Captain , And after you get done with the soapy rag then you put some Never Dull cotton wadding in there and do it all over again !

Re: Rig cleaner

I go up the mast every other year with a green scrubby pad and a hose.

Re: Rig cleaner

You should post this in the "Low Buck Projects" thread.

Re: Rig cleaner

If you're already in the chair/harness, might as well wipe down the rig. Doesn't take that long and it's good for it.

You wash your deck, scrub the bottom, and I'm assuming, wash your lines right?

Re: Rig cleaner

If your rig gets dirty enough to need that much cleaning, you should probably go sailing more often. Sailing, especially in the rain or if there's a lot of spray, seems to work just fine.

Re: Rig cleaner

Hi zz , I'm not really sure what you are talking about . Because this is a rig cleaner that wipes/scrubs down the rig . First I use it for all the rigging that I can do from the deck . And then I get in the chair to get it above the spreaders and finish the job . It really makes the whole job much easier . And yes zz I wash my lines too. Happy holidays everyone !

The lower rigging probably takes the brunt of the salt spray, anyway. Nice idea. Please post in "Low Buck Projects" if you haven't.

Re: Rig cleaner

My statement was directed to those who do not wipe down their rigging.
