Jim tilted it up so all the water would run out while he was pressure washing. Except there is no drain plug so all the water ran to the back and had to be bailed out.
He’s started washing…..
Doesn’t look too bad…..
Can you see a difference?
It’s slowly coming off…..
He was really pleased with how the teak hand rails came out. The windows leak and have a lot of old caulk around them. Looks like they will have to be removed and recaulked.
Now for the inside…..it is full of ants. Just when Jim thinks he’s got them all he finds more. Thankfully they are not fire ants.
The plywood walls were also full of ants. They will have to be removed because of all the rot.
Once everything was removed from the inside he pressure washed that also….only way to get some of those ants out.
I’ll have to make new covers for the foam cushions. Ants and damp had ruined the covers.
Starting on the inside.
Once it was washed inside we used the manual bilge pump to get most of the water out.
Tomorrow’s another day….
