Tip of the week – Keeping a clean bilge

The most ignored area of your boat is the bilge. But think about it; it contains the bilge pumps, the trim tab pump, and bait-well pumps, as well as your oil tank on 2 strokes plus all your rigging from your engines.
I find that a little bit of bleach goes a long way in keeping mildew at a minimum. There are bleach with scents that make the bilge smell good too.
After cleaning with bleach hose off then rinse with fresh water and let air dry. Finally spray with silicone spray to keep wiring and components protected.
