Re: The number one way to wreck your boat

I've pressure washed the decks of my boat twice. Once when I bought it from a nice man who had a blue tarp disintegrate above it... and little bits of plastic stuck to various parts of the deck.

The next time I did was to remove the ablative dust that was all over it after the bottom job. The blue grime ground into the deck. Although, my layup is coremat, not balsa.

The decks are 10-15 years old of perfection, or awlgrip (yes decks), not sure how they did the nonskid. So there is NO shine left, and it's on my long term list to fix.

Pressure washing the bottom is FINE for us freshwater folk.... with hard bottom, but completely unnecessary if you just brush the bottom as it comes out (still wet), and a wide tip spray head (lower pressure) works wonders immediately after that brushing.
