I’m in Edisto SC for vacation and found this reel that had been buried in the mud for a bit. The crusty stuff comes off pretty easily. I’ve got it soaking in some fresh water to wash out the salt water. It may be a lost cause but I’ve got to try. Any tips would be appreciated. Is there any sort of solution or oil to soak it in to help get rid of the crud? Once I get home I’ll see if I can get it apart.
