If you tell the marina mgmt about your problems, they will probably just invite you to move your boat somewhere else.

Go to your local garden supply place and buy either several of the cheapest 1-gallon garden sprayers, or one good one with brass fittings.

Mix a 1-8 mixture of bleach and water and spray everything in the shower room going in.

Dump the sprayer and rinse it going out. The bleach is very corrosive to the sprayer, if you are using a a cheapie, don't expect it to last very long.

Consider spraying down the finger dock by your boat as well. That staph can live outdoors in your area.


BTW, if you are having a problem with things crawling out of the harbor and fouling your dock, the bleach will make them reconsider landing on your dock. Works for harbor seals, otters, and even some pesky seabirds.


Um. ouch? Sorry to hear about the infection and the subsequent owwies...
Hope the elephant antibiotics work very well.


Yikes! I am glad that you finally received a definitive answer that it was not a spider and was indeed a staph infection so that you could be treated. I hope that you are feeling better soon.
Get well soon!
Have a wonderful day!

Ouch, bro. Glad to see you've got it figured out and are on the mend.

I second the bleach, although if you're worried about poisoning things you'd rather not, try a 50/50 mix of white distilled vinegar and water. That's what we use to clean our kitchen, and it works rather well.
