Renovo cleaner, soft top reviver and soft top ultraproofer.

In future I am going to try Fabsil Gold waterproofer, because you can get 5 lites for the cost of 1 litre of Renovo waterproofer.

One coat of each uses about 500 ml bottle, and at around £15 per bottle of each,  means cleaning, reviving and waterproofing the cover costs around £45.

Not today but I fitted a new engine silencer last trip. Before and after.

A little tip for next time... it will prove far more effective if you fit it to the engine and not just some piece of random pipe on a jetty.

Much cheaper than buying a new cover though.

Absolutely, DQ will be 10 in November, and the cover is still as good as new.

It was in a sorry stare when I got it,  so had some tears repaired by Kinver Canopies, and I have cleaned, revived and waterproofed every year since.

Since retiring, keeping on top of all the little jobs is my new career :D
