I have just worked put how to put the before and after pictures on! The work was carried out at rib shop as i mentioned at the start of the thread but they used Rib Revive and a 3M protector afterwards and this is the result. The before picture does not show as well as it could just how milky the tubes were, this disapeared after the treatments. The fabric is Hypalon, unusual for the playtime but was an extra cost option from new I am glad the first owner of the boat specified :-)

I used green kitchen scourers but they don't last long, apparently the "proper" ones from Ribshop are much better so I am going to order some of those some time.

As for clothes - anything you don't want to wear again in public! I made the mistake of wearing a newish cream coloured T-shirt which now has lots of orange patches on it and resides in the rags bin in the garage...
A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

If you buy the kit - cleaner and polish - you get a bit of scotchbrite (I think) scouring material.

All of it is ace, elbow grease is required - but it is well worth it.
