For the last thirty odd years I've never worried about shiny paintwork on my two ex-FMC joshers.  The butty is now, I'm afraid to say, a shiny boat after its extensive recent resoration.

 

On our mooring there's a cheeky heron that uses the roof of the back cabin as a lookout post and a landing runway.  The wretched bird has rapier like claws which are digging into the paintwork.

Any ideas how I can protect the shiny roof short of putting a cover on it? ?

 

Also the skid marks are too deep for buffing out with the likes of T-Cut. Sigh.

 

 

Polish the roof

fit net at end of runway

collect dazed bird post landing overshoot

relocate bird either to heron paradise or belgium

Scarecrow on the roof?

 

You could knock on Albions door and ask Mike to donate his best suit to cloth it.

Well here's what I do, others may differ.

 

Don't clean in blazing sun for starters.

 

Hose the boat down well to get it wet and rid of any debris.

Whilst wet shampoo with a large soft sponge.

Rinse well with clean water.

Shammy the boat dry.

When dry apply polish to small areas at a time.

Use a soft cloth or microfibre cloth and polish.

When the boat is complete it will now be well into the afternoon.

Get a chair, a good bottle of Merlot or whatever your tipple is and admire your handiwork. :captain:

 

You missed the bit about turning the boat around and doing the other side the next day ?
