  • Fiberglass, woods and steel after today will have no more secrets
  • Let’s not forget inflatable boats: tips for treating tubulars, etc.
  • Interior: how to sanitize the interior, possible treatments, and what to watch out for
  • A look at the hull, to see what we can also do “do it yourself”
