It's Amazing What Wax Can Do!

When the side of the boat cooled down in the evening we decided to wash and polish one side of the boat. First we washed the side  with Craftmaster Carnauba Wash and rinsed it off with clean water. Then we dried it off with a chamois leather, put on the Craftmaster Carnauba Wax and rubbed it off. We couldn't believe our eyes, one side of NB Bendigedig is back to it's original colour with the weathered paint removed and it's nice and shiny too!

Of course there's still some rust spots to tackle and the grass hides a multitude of sins.......the battered gunnels which need  paint. We'll have to polish the other side when its towpath side.
