After intensive racing at the F18 worlds, burning sun, a plague of algae, salt, sand, sand, sand, beer and marquerita's at night and 4500 kilometers with an average speed of 100 km/h I can't wonder why my Tiger's beams and mast are looking a little bit worn out.
Does anyone has some tips and hints on restoring the beams, mast, boom, spi-pole to a more-like-mint condition ?

Thnx 2 y'all

I suggest classified ads, to sell it, while you take a couple of bucks out of the bank to exchange that boat for a new one and put another sailor in your fleet.

Really fine brass wool and Penetrol does an amazing job of restoring the black anodized finish on the the beams and mast.
