I tried your method this afternoon. As soon as i started spraying they came out of the cracks and died. I must have knocked down 40-50. Its sure got to help. I'll see what it looks like in the morning.

Everybody else's chemical suggestions are probably excellent, but the delivery, especially with a boat still in the lift cradle, might make a bit of a mess. Let alone what might get in your eyes. The foggers are cheap and available anywhere, and the delivery is easy and clean. Minutes after you treat an area you can see the results as the spiders will lower themselves on their webstring looking for some fresh air to die in. The fog must leave a residue that discourages them for a while because it will take a few months before I will see more spider droppings.
