What do you mean "detailing"? What exactly are you looking for? Where are you located?

Hey Reid, who do you know that does it in LeCenter. My boat hull is white and is yellowing pretty bad and was wondering who or what could get er back to white again. Let me know.

Like auto detailing... buff/wax hull, carpet. Just a really good clean-up. I'm from Forest Lake.

Frankies does it. They did a boat I sold and did a good job, boat looked better than it ever did when I owned it. Was not cheap though.

Call any of the big marinas on the St. Croix. There are all sorts of small businesses around that do that stuff on the bib boats and would be happy to do a smaller one for you.

Try Buff Masters in Maplewood or The Boat Dr. in Stillwater.

Call Steve with Wetzee's Detail and Auto Wash. Not real cheap but they do a very, very, very good job.

Ditto on Frankies! I have had couple boats done there and their guy makes the boat look brand new but as was stated earlier it is not cheap but you will be impressed.

Zing baby, Zing! 10 bucks and she is white as new. No need to spend the $$ on detailing as that is what they will be using. Spray it on, watch the magic happen, then spray it off. I dilute mine quite a bit.

The Meguires acid product I've tried doesn't seem to be potent enough, I guess.

Try a mild toilet bowl cleaner.

just make sure you choose right, because if your boat doesn't look its best, the fish don't bite

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
