Great ideas, thanks all! Just an update from my original post - I started pulling everything out and decided on Simple Green, Murphy's and, in just a few of the toughest spots, Lime Away. The Simple Green has worked great - this boat was FLITHY. I've got it about 50% finished, not too bad for a Sunday afternoon. Now to finish the inside, then onto sewing curtains and cushion slipcovers and THEN the outside. At least the sails are in great shape!

coool--sounds like you will be sailing soon----for routine cleaning maintenance, vinegar and murphys spray and , in my case, as my interior is almost all wood, orange oil and lemon oil--teak oil for the exterior.......and barkeepers friend for the metalwork and rusty spots......

From experience: be careful what you use on windows. All plastic is not created equal! When the cleaner fine print says to try it on an inconspicuous place... believe it!
