Plastic Shells, Floaters, and Full-Bodies
To prevent curling, stored shells should be stacked upside down with a wooden-dowel spreader inside the top decoy. Clean all plastic dekes with cold water and a stiff-bristle brush—no soaps. Lightly sand and touch up faded areas with paint from Parker Coatings (mackspw.com).
For floaters, inspect and if necessary replace anchor cords, weights, swivels, gang-rig clips, cord, and crimps.
