need help cleaning up a real mess!
my first post. A friend gave me his sailboat because he is no longer physically able to sail. It is a 21' Santana and overazll in fair condition considering it sat under a shed roof for 8 years in New York state. There are 8 years of mice and racoon 'droppings' inside and I have discovered bleach, orange degreaser, and fabreeze are my new best friends. Q. - Has anyone here on the forum had the 'pleasure' of cleaning up this kind of mess and do you have any tips that do not involve gasoline and matches? I have cleaned up most of the mess but there are little crooks and crannys between the decking and the hull that need to be cleaned. There is a pressure washer available tomorrow and I will probably try that but need a good way to remove the waste water. Already burned up a small drill pump. A siphon is being considered.
