I never gave that possibility a thought but since I now have a 12 foot (hose) transom shower/cockpit washdown with hot and cold water, I may try that myself, (The operative word is "may.")

P.S. It works really well and shoots much farther than I thought. Going fishing tomorrow and will try and get some photos.

It certainly is. It is so white that wearing shades would be mandatory. Squid fishing wouldn't be advisable from that cockpit.

I have a bit more "patina" on my boat. My cockpit wash down fittings consist of a bucket and lanyard. Works for hot/cold fresh water too if I haul it from the sink. Not just any bucket - but a proper stainless steel beauty!

Photos can make anything look good! She photographs much better than she shows in person but thanks anyway. Flywright, after being aboard several times, pointed out that I had a couple of loose screws. I looked virtually everywhere but couldn't find them.

Interesting comment. Not that I intend to squid fish but why isn't the cockpit suited for squid? It was to be one of my best sales points!

When squid fishing it's best to let them pump themselves dry before hauling them in, but they sometimes save one last squirt of ink for a shiny white cockpit.

She's a beaut, Walt. I think I said "You keep it so perfect. You must have a screw loose."

Keep looking...it's there.
