Professional? Wow Jody thanks for the compliment even if it was tongue in cheek!!! It's strictly a hobby and I do have a real job to support my sailing habit...

I all honesty that photo was cropped to hide some of my tools and crap stuffed on the settees...

trantor12020 I actually did clean up my bilge last weekend using diluted chlorox and brush. Was pretty happy and impressed with results as stains get bleach and I can see the bottom of the white bilge until I see what Halek did for his bilge ......"my ballon deflated"

wchevron i have to say i'm jealous. i got just back from a day of cleaning the bilge and it doesn't look half as good as yours, and that's with a fresh coat of paint on it.

Sounds like Maine is a good place to buy a lightly used boat!!!

proflyer I thought the bilge on my CS36 was spotless until I saw that--- ah well back to the cleaning

JohnRPollard Halek,

That is one SHALLOW bilge. Now I understand why you like to keep it bone dry!

Looks good, though, and thanks for the cleaning tips -- ours could use some attention.
