There I was last week, on my summer holiday in Greece, allegedly sailing round the Greek Isles (I think the only reason I was invited out was to help with the winter layup of Peter and Anita's Oyster on the last two days). Alongside us in the Cleopatra boatyard, Prevesa, was a very nice Dutch couple who were putting the final touch's to their end of season preparations. Did happen to notice after the couple had gone that they had first of all wrapped the Harken winches in cling film, yes it will keep airborne dirt out, however it will of course trap moisture in! Noticed also they had done a great job of protecting the teak cockpit table (but not the teak in the cockpit) once again in a waterproof but not breathable material, recipe for mildew methinks? Halyards lying on deck, our advice... remove completely from the mast, wash in fresh water, dry and store below. Fenders wash and store below. Methinks it would be sensible of the couple to get the local sail maker in Prevesa to make up a breathable square sheet, reinforced edges and strong eyelets, manufactured in something like Weathermax, it's tough, very breathable, colour fast and will (once boat brought out of hibernation) fold up into a small space! However make sure you use something like the spinnaker pole to create a ridge pole effect over the cockpit to prevent it filling up with water! For next spring when they do their annual fit out, Meguiar's rubbing compound followed by their Flagship Premium will not only keep the gelcoat sparkling but will help prevent the blue stripe from chalking badly! For all the teak work, Teak Wonder ticks the box as far as I am concerned and if they happen to find some mildew on the boat when they return it in the spring, Starbrite Mildew Remover should do the trick!
