We have been working hard on Wrinkles to make her look the way we want her to. It is the small improvements that make a big impact. For example, we removed all six of the porthole screens and tried to make them a little more presentable. We tried soapy water and scrubbing, but the corrosion just wasn't going away. We ended up soaking them in muriatic acid and scrubbing them with a plastic bristled brush. Now that looks more like it! The screen at the top of the picture is after one quick cleaning in the acid.
When I first looked at the teak on Wrinkles I was concerned that 24 years of Florida sun and salt had pretty much finished them off. As you can see in the first picture they were pretty rough.
