|Hullabaloo in serious project mode|
Since we were stuck inside we tackled cleaning the floor. When we got done the floor was nowhere near spotless, but then again the boat is 33 years old and if she didn't have a little character, she wouldn't be as special as she is. Plus, a perfect boat would not be a perfect boat for us.
We used a little Soft Scrub, some water and a lot of elbow grease to get the job done. I chose to use Soft Scrub because it's a nice, mild cleaner. We could have used a harsher cleaner and probably got more dirt out, but I didn't want to beat up the teak anymore than it already is. I didn't realize how much dirt we actually got out until we dumped the bucket in the sink. We could have probably scrubbed the floor ten more times and gotten more dirt out each time. But I'm happy with how it turned out and not too worried about what dirt is left.
