The number one way to wreck your boat
The average sailor has nightmares of lee shores, being run down at night by a freighter, and freak storm's.
In reality the most damage done to the average boat is by lack of proper maintenance. I hate this time of year when my usually quiet marina turns into pressure washer hell. All the people who have ignored their boats for the last 8 months come down and fire up those horrible gas powered beasts. Shooting a high powered water jet at your decks is the number one cause of rotted cores. Please give us all a break and just wash the damn thing by hand.
tip of the day, using dish soap to wash your boat takes off 100% of the wax you applied last week.
