Hey skipper, want to make life onboard a little easier for you or your crew when faced with cleaning tasks requiring sponges, brushes, and lots of old-fashioned elbow grease?

Craftsman, known for its tools and accessories, offers the Cordless Scrubber as a solution. The lightweight, two-speed, 9.6-volt rechargeable unit has a watertight housing that allows it to be fully submerged for continuous operation in up to three feet of water. The detachable, three-position handle means you can use more force when you need it. Quick-change accessories for cleaning, scrubbing, waxing, buffing, and polishing include a wax-applicator sponge, a polishing pad, a curved brush, and a soft-cone brush. The Scrubber comes with a charger and is packed in its own five-gallon bucket for easy stowage aboard.

A friend of mine recently used a Cordless Scrubber on his boat in South Florida. He reported that it cleaned his boat’s waterline, boot stripe, and transom with ease, and in addition, he found the Scrubber worked wonders on his carpeting and in the heads, galley, and engine room.

MSRP for the Cordless Scrubber is $49.99. —K.K.
