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

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
