Things that work

Rope Cleaning Tool:
Sometimes the standard advice to wash with gentle detergent and perhaps some fabric softener just won't cut it, and pressure washing may be required.
Here's a simple tool that makes it easier.

Assemble a "TEE" fitting with plastic pipe.
The horizontal 'top' of the T will be just large enough to easily draw the rope through.
The vertical 'stem' of the T will be fitted with a garden hose adaptor (perhaps /w a shut-off valve).
Attach the garden hose to the adaptor, and /w water running, pull rope, back & forth, through 'top' tee sleeve.

Changed forum

Thanks for the advice Gord.

I changed the Yacht Maintainance & Boat Building forum to this:

Yacht Maintainance, Boat Building, Tips & Tricks
Discussions on maintainance, boat building and tips & tricks in general regarding sailing and sailboats. Antifouling, sail repairs, cleaning procedures, things that work and things that doesn't ...
Happy cruising,
