What the Deck! Quick tips for deckhands

Mar 24, 2022 by Chief Officer Wesley Walton

  • When removing moldy caulking from shower or basin areas, use a mixture of bleach and alcohol. This way the mold will be removed and the moisture will be dried out before resealing.
  • Never leave a pole or any equipment standing upright, as it may fall and damage the yacht. Always lay it down on the deck out of the way. “If it’s on the floor, it can’t fall on the floor.”
  • Return tools and products to their place immediately after use. Ensure they are cleaned and vacuums are emptied after every use.
  • Ask engineers for specialized tools; never just take them.
