it is okay to use water to wash your boat but you cannot use cleaners of any kind. Water is sold by the ton and costs roughly $3 per 1,000 liters (approx 250 gallons). Yet some sailors are so darn cheap
they are washing
dishes and laundry
in the marina restroom sinks.
As for the original posting
regarding slapping halyards, my husband once could no longer stand the slapping halyard
on a charter
boat docked near us. He went over to them and said, "Here. Let me fix that for you."
