Topside Cleaning
« on: April 18, 2019, 05:55:21 PM »

Just  a question, when scrubbing the topsides do you start at the bow or stern? I start at the bow however when I finish in the cockpit area I always leave foot prints.

I start in the cockpit, then move to the bow and work back to the cockpit.  I give the cockpit a second quick cleaning at the end.

If your cleaning topsides, the footprints in the cockpit are left by someone walking in the cockpit.

Apparently only those who know where the topsides are.
