Dear Albergers,

Started refinishing Constance in the Spring.  Did the entire cockpit.
Sanded, filled with SystemThree QuikFair, two base coats of Interlux
primer, followed by three coats of Brightside.  Redid the non-skid using
white KiwiGrip.

Happy with how the results are working out.  No so happy about how easily
the new finish shows dirt and grime.  What is in the air around Annapolis
that falls on the boat as some kind of black powder.  The Brightside cleans
up nicely.  The KiwiGrip is harder to get clean.

Heard of a new product this week called SoftSand Rubber.  They have a
number of "case studies" including a Cape Dory 30 and an Alberg 29?

Anyone heard of or used this product?
