No I couldn't see the mesh of the fabric on mine, although you can see the state they were in from my thread. To be honest I think the only way to really repair that is to patch it (or change the patch if the mesh is on the patch).

However, clean the boat with TFR first and then use the 303, you should see an improvement that'll cheer you up considerably. Then get it on the water!

That'll give you time to think about your approach to dealing with the mesh.

Sarah go gentle with the cleaning as you will be removing the top layer if your not gentle! The 303 is great a getting things looking good & at the end of the day it is just cosmetic sun damage & should last years to come especially with a bit of TLC!

I've just spokent to Porters and they were saying that if I see the webbing - probably better not to use any harsh products. I may need new wear patches. As some of these bear patches are on the wear patches, we could just ignore them, or if cosmetically I want to improve the situation, look to change the wear patches.

As a couple of the external lifelines - the rubber bits - are slightly knackered, perhaps I could kill two birds with one stone, remove the wear patches and broken rubber bits and replace with new.

Oh good - new ways of spending my money

Only just seen this.

Have a look at my (ex) white bits
Can You Use Polish On The Tubes

Incidently the Klear has not cracked yet.

If I see you on Sat (have a mooch up towards Cobnor if I am not out in the main channel) and you can see the before and after. i.e. I still have only cleaned one side.

If you want any bits of Hypalon stuck on, have a word with Messenger Marine, just north of Southbourne (?), on the right after Cemetery Lane and before the Woodmancote tee junction.

Hi Mark - I would love to see your white bits! Oh the boat, sorry misunderstood...

Thanks for this - I have printed this off. Just out of interest as we have the same type of boat - could you see the mesh (just) under the blue?

Please say yes because then I will just do what you did and my boat will look brand new again!

Thanks Mark

Sarah

Ok, if you insist.

Yes.

The tubes do look like canvas sprayed with blue paint.

Thank you thank you thank you.

The rib shine you mentioned in your thread, is that Viking Ribshine (about 5.99 from Marine superstore for 500ml)?
