Spick and Span
Our friend Barb recently asked if she could use one of our photos in a piece that she was writing about cleaning on a boat. The photo that she selected is of an exceptionally clean head with a very pretty cat hiding behind it. I want to come clean (yes, that was an intentional pun) and say that although our boat is not a pig sty, we do not keep it quite as clean as some others that we know of. Prior to taking photos, I tend to pick up any clutter which might end up in the background of the shot and in the case of the photo of the head, I cleaned the toilet and surrounding area before I snapped the pic.
I remember reading our friend Drew’s post about cleaning/maintenance jobs that he would not be doing that season. I like to think that we’re somewhere between that and cleaning OCD. That is not to suggest that Drew is a slob but rather he, like us, prefers to sail more than he does scrub things with a toothbrush. All that said, we are perfectly aware that when we take on the job of looking after the new Leopard charter boat, we’ll have to up our game considerably on the cleaning front. We’ll need to keep the boat spick and span for our guests.
