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

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
