Tannin? My experience with water containing Tannin would be limited to fresh water lakes, rivers, or streams that have forests on their shores. Would sailing in Cyprus have that type of water conditions and vegetation? Would Tannin exist in saltwater?
I apologize in advance for this part of the post, but to offer a connection to the thread "It's Funny Friday" may I ask, "Were you sailing anywhere near a sewage treatment facility?"
savvas - I sailing in the Mediterranean. That stain was caused about 50 miles off the east coast of Rhodes.
While the photo shows it on deck, that could be from going upwind and spray o'er the deck. Of course, we don't know what his bow looks like, so it could just only be on the deck. Either way, FSR or the old "any ole oxylitic acid" answer.
Rust from pulpit welds is what I thought also as I am not familiar with any tannins. The hull only got Brown run spots around the Stanchion areas and not all over so I doubt is tannin. What’s interesting on my next leg yesterday from Rhodes to Simi island still sailing upwind with similar conditions did not generate any more of the brown stuff. If it is stanchion rust how to I take care of that?looks like rust from the pulpit welds.
Could it be a stainless/chrome cleaner I used before the trip on the stanchions?While the photo shows it on deck, that could be from going upwind and spray o'er the deck.
