Attack of the Jellyfish

So, hubby has been talking about the clean up he needs to do on the stanchions - "there's some silicone to clean off". I just shrugged it off until he pointed out the PO's version of leak control.







And, as we've been going around doing the spring clean/compound/wax we've discovered the "extra" silicone from the tube went around the portals. Sigh.

One more thing for the lengthening list! Any tips on cleaning silicone off?

Re: Attack of the Jellyfish

The only tip I can offer is scrape, don't sand.

Once you get all the offending goop cleaned up, it's time to build some chainplate "islands".
to prevent water intrusion. a 3/4" block of teak slotted for the chainplate will look great and divert spray runoof around the 'plates.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Scrape?
I can cut it with a machete from the dock.
Fortunately I'm ordering a battery monitor from Maine Sail's website today, so I'll be adding a roll or two of buytl tape to the box.
