Hi Lola, I'm new at this boat mtce. also. I've heard that you need to clean track first (denatured alcohol), then lubricate.. I believe sailkote is what u want ...anything else will be gummy, sticky & collect dirt. But from what I understand you have to clean first before lubricating. Not sure on securing rag..maybe safety pin?? would have to look at it. good luck! Terri
just called a friend who's had boats all his life. He says soak the rag in denatured alcohol to clean track.. only spray sailkote on the slugs not in track. He also says going up in a bos'uns chair is the only way to get it really clean. Can be done by sending up but won't do a real good job. That's his opinion, you'll probably get 50 different ways to do it.. Will be interesting to see.
I would plan for a trip up the mast and do inspection of tangs, turnbuckles, sheaves, lights etc as well as clean the track and clean and wax the mast. It takes an hour or two but worth the effort. I would also ge a few extra sail slides to attach to a terry cloth and slide them up as you go, keeping saturated with alcohol. I think I would also lubricate the track with a dry lubricant such as SailKote but definatley not anything that would leave any oily residue behind. Clean and dry lube each sail slug. I usually do this every two years.
