Good boat cleaner for painted aluminum?

7 posts in this topic

I've been using Zing for a few years and it works great on the month+ old scum line. The problem is, I have to apply it to a brush and some of the areas on the boat bottom are hard to reach and I'm not about to crawl around and have that stuff drip on me. Plus the fumes can build up under the boat on a calm day and nearly burn your eyes out. I'm looking for a good spray on style scumline remover for painted alum. to make life easier. I've heard The Works is good, but don't want to use something that'll damage the paint either. Any good suggestions out there?

Thanks

i use the Works on my lund and never had any problems you dont have to leave it on the boat very long and can put it in a spray bottle and works wonders for scum line..i clean my boat every fall with it just rinse it good with the hose..and use gloves tends to burn the skin alittle!!!

On my Ty-ee I just use 409 in a spray bottle and a soft rag. Always works great for me and no problems.

Power washer for me. Rivers (especially pool 2) leave a lot of scum.

The price we pay for todays boats etc you should use something that is made for boats. A lot of that kitchen stuff is very hard on the clear coat. Worse than you think. I use Restore and Wonderfoam. You can get it from (note from admin: please read forum policy before posting again, thanks) Nels

Skeeter, I see that Wonderfoam works on mineral deposits. Does it work well on cutting through the 6 weeks of slimy brown scum on the boat? Does it require some scrubbing? I like the idea of boat products vs. kitchen as well.

Thanks

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
