Hi all, my first message, perhaps of many, apologies in advance. I'm in the process of buying a woodie, she's in the Wet Shed at Stalham: I've read to wash a woodie in salt water as it helps preserve and prevent rot - anyone have any thoughts?

Very nice Zephyr

not sure about the salt water washing, its been around a while and probably rarely had a salty wash other than on its hull through Yarmouth.

Cuprinol 5 Star? Why use a water-based product (you even clean the brushes and rollers with water) on a boat? It was developed for prevention of woodworm infestation and dry/wet rot indoors - lofts, floorboards - taking into consideration odour and drying time.

Salt water does inhibit green mould on natural teak decking though, so I do give mine a scrub (lightly, and with the grain, not across it) whenever the opportunity arises.

That must be why my boat doesn't have woodworm.
