After a wet Georgia summer I had some mildew on my boat. I got around to scrubbing it with peroxide last week and so needed to re oil all the ply and a few ribs. Before I'd use a rag and scrub everything real good. After watching the second tips from a shipwright series I tried Louis' technique of just using a chip brush and a spray bottle of oil.
I'm never going back. Takes less than 5 minutes to do the whole boat. Barely get your hands dirty and I honestly think it's more efficient with the oil. Can't recommend it enough.
