Thanks MaineSail!

Hey Mainesail,
Thanks for your tips and How-to's! I followed your advice on buffing and polishing and am very pleased with the result. Definitely a learning curve, but much shallower than if I did not have your posted step by step to lead the way.

Thought I would give you a shout out and say thanks.

Re: Thanks MaineSail!

I just polished my freeboard with Collinite 885 and was wondering what you recommended for the decks.

Thanks.

Woody Wax works GREAT for nonskid.

Also, if Maine Sail has helped you out, consider donating something to him via this link.

DISCLAIMER: I have NO financial interest in Maine Sail, but I do appreciate his "pay it forward" philosophy, and the time that he spends making his tutorials, and participation in multiple forums.

Or equally beneficial, consider purchasing some of those do-it-yourself items from his site. The butyl tape has come in very useful over the years.

Thanks Maine Sail for all the "How-To" advice.

Re: Thanks MaineSail!

The How-To site a great resource.

I just had a survey on my boat last Monday. The surveyor got to the seacock that I replaced and said it looked like it was done by a professional. I did not expect any high praise for it but I am happy with how it turned out. 7 more seacocks to replace and now more confident in being able to do this work.

My thanks as well.
