Best way to clean a boat cover.....

.........does anyone know ? Mine's attracted a lot of green alge over the past couple of seasons and is starting to look a bit tatty despite its near otherwise perfect condition. It's a shame and I want to do something about. No moving it away from the buishes aint an option and neither is chopping the buggers down

Any ideas so that I do not loose the waterproofing that already exists ?

TFR and a pressure washer, or if youre in a bad mood a scrubbing brush! Would a camping suppliers do stuff for waterproofing Canvas.

You can certinly buy stuff to re waterproof your foulies that you shove in the washing machine, would your cover fit in a commercial launderette washing machine!.

Or you could just send it to TIP TOP. they specialise in cleaning sails but do a great job on covers.

........a link to these guys. Google seems to have let me down !

P D - If it were not for the fact that I'd be 100% sure you'd be lurking in the bins, I'd so so. I suppose your thinking behind such a suggestion relates to the vast size of my cover, if you were lucky enough to find another of equal proportion, you may just about manage to cobble together a pair of knickers big enough to cover Gaynors fat arse........
