A clean boat is a happy boat

Well today after failing to get the engine going and running the battery flat I decided I might as well address the tubes which I must admit need some love!

I spent a good hour or two going over the top of the tubes cleaning them and am now very happy with the results.

Here's a before and after picture!

I used this stuff from the "Rib Shop" called "rib revive" and "rib conditioner".
Worked pretty well!

Thank you

Did you wax your engine? It's in the maintenance instructions for mine.
