Polishing the hull

Thought I would give the hull a polish yesterday, as it is going to be on a mooring for 5 to 6 weeks I used Harken McLube HullKote Speed Polish as is says it should help reduce growth!
I normally don marks and snorkel once a fortnight to scrub her bottom, hoping this might make a difference

Looks good I wish I had a garage like that rather than spending a weekend crawling under the trailer and balancing the boat off the trailer to get under the rollers!!!

Normally work on the do at is done on the drive at home too

Used oxalic acid on it before polishing, recon I have removed my finger prints as well as yellow stains
