Wave Wacker Scum

Recommended Posts

Guest

My wave wackers are cover with scum. It almost looks like oxidation. Does anybody know of any chemicals I can use to clean it? I have tried many of the boat washes and houshold cleaners. One person suggested that I use the acid that truckers use to get the oxidation off of semi trailers. This same stuff is on my motor. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My wife told me to use white vinegar and was pleased with the result. Hope it works for you also.

Just one product....The Works (toilet and bowl cleaner), it works like magic, spray it on, rinse it off. It will remove any water stain, deposits, etc. Especially heavy stuff. Cost $ .83/bottle at WalMart. Then wax them or spray some silicone, so anything will stick on it.

Just a note about the Works. It is awesome stuff but be sure to rinse anything you use it on really well. It will eat up your chrome etc.

Hello WP,

I personally just use either armorall or son-ofagun spray to remove the water scum or droplets. It works well and doesn't smell as potent! Like D-man said, us a coat of wax or rainX on them and they will shine for a longtime.

It sounds like a good case of hard water stain. Wipe them down with white vinager as one of the previous posts suggests, if that dosen't work to your satisfation, pick up a jug of CLR. You can find it anywhere. Then wax the dump outta them!

Hello WP,

I work for a Metro Plastics Company your Wave Wackers are made of Polycarbonate Sheet plastic. The only recomendation I would suggest is "Do Not" Use Harsh chemicals on them as any Amonia based cleaners or Man made chemicals will break down the properties of the polycarbonate & eliminate the UV protection in the resins of the plastic & this could be bad for them over time in the sun. As stated above use Vineger or a Citrus based product to clean them & wax them really good to prevent future scum.

Good Luck

Hey sportfishin,

Good call on the chemicals.
What company do you work for? Are you hiring engineers?

Speaking of wave wackers,I've been looking to buy one of those for my tracker boat. I've looked everywhere, and I can't seem to find them here in Utah. I need them bad... can I make them or is it specialty made product?

How much do they cost? If selling, what would be a good price?

    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Than I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
    • Good luck!  Bring bear spray, make sure it's always accessible, and know how to use it. No shortage of grizz in that area. Seems practically every year someone is attacked in the Gravelies.    Have fun and report back!
    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
