ALL boats brought to sessions MUST be thoroughly cleaned INSIDE AND OUT previous to sessions, or the boats will not be allowed in pools. ALL BOATS WILL BE INSPECTED AND IF NOT, CLEAN IT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN. Club boats will be available to loan for the session. ALGAE CONTAMINATION OF KAYAKS IS BECOMING A SERIOUS ISSUE AT POOL SESSIONS. ALGAE CONTAMINATION CAN REQUIRE COMPLETE EMPTYING OF A POOL TO DISINFECT! NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS CAN END A POOL SESSION SERIES PERMANENTLY. SO PLEASE DO YOUR PART TO KEEP US CLEAN! BELOW IS A RECOMMENDED GUIDE FOR CLEANING YOUR BOAT BEFORE GOING TO ANY POOL SESSION. 1.Remove all airbags, removable outfitting (hip block wedges etc.) Strip the boat as well as practical. 2.If outside water is available, hose off exterior and interior. 3.Spray a generous amount of "Simple Green" inside and out. (A natural, non-toxic product and excellent algaecide) Let sit a bit, Scrub where you can, then hose out thoroughly. (Bleach is an alternative but be careful not to use in strong concentration, as is will damage some outfitting and irritate skin.) 4.If you cannot clean your boat outside, its recommended that you simply spray the simple Green liberally in boat, add a couple gallons of water to boat. Slosh around the best you can and drain outside. 5.IF YOU TAKE YOUR BOAT ON THE RIVER BETWEEN SESSIONS YOU SHOULD REPEAT THIS PROCESS. 6.You may want to consider having a dedicated pool boat.
