September 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #184: Safety Guidelines for Pressure Washing your Boat

Tip of the Week

The key to safety is preparation, so before boat pressure washing, make a mental rundown of the procedure.

* Whether you are using a gas pressure washer or an electric power washer, make sure you have plenty of time for the job. You should never use your power washing equipment in a rush.
* Check that you are in the right location, some marinas have rules stating that repairs and washing must be carried out in designated areas only.
* Check for lose items, electric cords, make sure that all hatches and windows are closed and protect anything that shouldn't get wet.
* Whatever you do, don't try to rinse your feet while you are pressure washing, it will peel the skin right off your toes!
