Charlie is helping to clean the the Teak onboard our floating home sailing catamaran, Emma James. We are using the Just Teak kit from GreenCorp and we are tackling all the spots we have teak onboard; back bench, cockpit seats, dolphin seats, and the shower.

The shower was the most tedious part getting into all the holes but so satifying in the end. The most satisfying to see the before and after were: the back bench seat and the dolphin seats at the bow.
