Mooring Maintenance

We just purchased a used Flying Scot and are mooring it for the summer.  We are new to the sport and having a lot of fun with it.

Pressure

In our lake the boats get an algae buildup.  Some of the racers take a dip and clean it off, and at the end of the season, they use a pressure washer to clean.

Not a bottom paint comment, but someone (I believe it was Harry C.) here suggested attaching the spinnanker halyard to the bow handle and snugging it up. Keeps the main from slamming against the stays when the boat gets hit by motorboat wakes.
