Stern cleaned and looking good

Middle of June 2016 - Tied up in Marina Mazatlan, Mexico

We did this in January 2016 in the Barra-Bahia de Navidad lagoon. This post I forgot to publish but here it is :)

Here I am cleaning the top part of the stern steps.
You can see we did both sides of the stern and then tackled the stern steps.

The stern steps are pretty darn bad looking. They do get a lot of work sitting in all kinds of water and are dropped everywhere we anchor in all kinds of conditions.

It's me in the dinghy cleaning the steps.

Now that the steps are clean they look better than the other two sides of the stern.
The gel coat on the steps is a bit different in color then the rest of the stern. My guess is they were made separately when the boat was manufactured by Islander Yachts.

s\v Elegant'sea is looking good! There is a chunk of gel coat missing from one corner of the stern steps that will need repairing sometime in the future. 

They got cleaned with "Big White" conditioner, base coat and then paste wax.
