Pylasteki is a 1961 Pearson Triton sailboat. She is one of my personal project boats... I am rebuilding her as a blue water cruiser.

Round three...

Bilge... Round Three!

Today was round three of the Bilge cleanup.

The first round involved putty knives and scooping out goo.
The second round involved peeling up most of the loose resin sealer that Pearson put in.

The third... Stainless steel wire brush, and a bottle of Simple Green.

Spray a 6 inch wide stretch of bilge, scrub until bubbly goo forms... wipe off with wet paper towel. Repeat... Switch sides. Work from top to bottom, and knock loose any dry crud so it doesn't stick in the wire brush...


3 hours later, I had made some progress! Then, it was dinner time, and time to do the laundry. Hehehe... (sure beats 5 gallon buckets and a garden trowel like on Noel...)

More to go before its ready for the new sole... getting close!


Is'dat a shiny spot I see?
