Boat barnacle removal?

7 posts in this topic

Well it's not barnacles, but you know the lake scum that adheres to your boat if left in the water after a few months.

What the best way to remove that crusty stuff without taking a sanding disc to it? sick

i have found that the toilet bowl cleaner THE WORKS does the best job at getting scum line and white dried on [PoorWordUsage] from back of boat and motor..i just spray it on and it just melts off then hose it off ..really never have had to scrub with that stuff and it get rid of rust stains also..try it it might surprise you..

Will the Works damage aluminum?

I know liquid drain cleaner and aluminum foil will burn up the foil. Just wondering.

Fin....i have used the works the last 2 years and havent had any issues with it...put it in a spray bottle and its not on my boat for more the a couple minutes and i hose it right off and the back of the boat looks brand new...i have tried all other stuff and done the spray on wait 10 minutes and use towel to take off but always when it dried the white scum came back..with the works my boat looks brand new at the water line..so i have not had any issues with it
