Spring Clean

Charlie Brown has been in the water over the winter (give or take a few weeks) so we are getting her lifted on friday for the weekend. we have some small electrical work going on (AIS receiver and Engine Trim sensor) but the main aim is to give it a really good clean!

its not too bad as it has a full cover which protects the tubes from the sun and covers the bathing platform as well but would appreciate any tricks of the trade to get her gleaming again for the summer.

The flexiteek is dirty! it needs a really good clean as the dirt is pretty well set. any suggestions?

The tubes are not too bad but need a heneral spruce up. would say TFR is not required as they are pretty clean but a little faded. i have some 303 tube protector but need to get them shiney first.

The GRP and carbon dash are going to get a polish.

Any suggestions for removing a few little rust stains which have appeared from under the seat cushions?

Charlie Brown should finally be getting its name and graphics put on this weekend too! its only been a year!!!

On the plus side, i guarentee good weather this coming weekend! sods law as we wont be able to get on the water so the rest of you enjoy our gift!
