Vlog 118: Bob Cratchit

A bit of DIY and a product review in this video as I think back to when I was moored over the summer and took the cratch cover off, firstly to kill off the algae growing on it (courtesy a free review product from Kinver Canopies, who nonetheless had no say in the editorial content of my review), secondly to clean it, and thirdly to re-waterproof the canvas.

    Maybe a video on restoring the finish to the (Teak?) Table inside the Wheel Deck may be in order. I once restored the Teak Splash Board and Hatch cover on a small sailboat. The product which I bought (Three separate bottles I think) worked fabulously. The Teak was grey and very oxidized. The cleaner stripped all the oxidation off with gentle brushing, using a wire brush. The wood was re-stained and looked brand-new. I believe an oil finish of some sort was applied to seal the deal.

  2. Simple Spray is a canvas waterproofing solution which is not very expensive and is available in colours.
