    Hi everybody. I have recently aquired a wayfarer, unfortunately the sails have brown rusty stains on them. Does anyone know of a good solution/product to remove them.
    Thanks in anticipation

    A weak solution of oxallic acid (occurs naturally in green rhubarb leaves!) will remove iron and other stains. One used to be able to get it from chemists, but failing that it is used in furniture restoration and polish suppliers should be able to get it to you.

    Thanks for your reply John. I will try to track a supplier in the North East.
