Favorite Cleaning Chemical?

Recommended Posts

So what's your favorite chemical used to get rid of the scum line-after about 2 months of sitting in the water? I've used Zing before with pretty good results, but it's tricky getting under the boat while on the trailer. I'd prefer not to have that stuff dripping on me when crawling underneath. Anyone have any secret methods??

Thanks

that or an air chisel grin

Geeez what kinda build up you get up there in ND ??? wink

Get The Works at any store, the one in the regular bottle, not the spray type. Get a junk spray bottle (I say junk since it will be useless after), and spray the hull completely. Let it soak few minutes, and if really built up you can use a plastic brush to scrub a little.

Rinse it off well, be sure to check where you do this, it might stain concrete or asphalt.

Sharpshooter from 3M is very fast and effective on boats. Not sure where to get it for residential use, but it is the best I have seen since working at a boat factory.

The Works will definatly damage concrete and is very corrosive.

Wonderfoam, search the net you should have no trouble finding it. It is also biodegradable. I also use Restore by the same company. Best products I have used hands down.

Is it possible for the scum line to permanently stain the color of the paint regardless of which cleaner is used?

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
