  • Clean / wax your boat?

    Posted by Greg on July 10, 2015 at 12:05 pm

    I have failed to wipe down the outside of my boat after being one the lake and that lake scum has really taken hold.
    Is there a better way or product that I should try to make my boat look good?

    Might seem crazy, but I use Lime Away on the outside to get the hard stuff off and then use Dry or Wet Turtle Wax with a dry cloth. Works great for me!

    If it’s bad…buy Oxalic Acid in power form…mix as directed…using a rag wipe down area and then flush with water.

    I purchases mine from Amazon in a 2lb bag…only needed 1/4th or 8ozs to clean a 20 ft bass boat.

    WARNING! Wear long sleeve shirt and long pants, rubber gloves and eye protection. It will not burn your skin but they say to try and keep it off your skin and eyes.

    I agree with Brian, Lime Away works good and it is cheap.

    Every since a dry storage boat employee told me to use the works toilet bowl cleaner to get rid off that dark stain from scum that’s all I’ve used, It works instantly. Just rinse off with water. I use a 3m boat wax.

    Like Dakota I use the Works toilet bowl cleaner from WM. That stuff is the bomb on my white hull. Make sure you wax afterwards because that stuff goes straight to the gel.
