Cleaning/Waxing

Recommended Posts

After fishing all summer I have developed a yellowish tinge on the bottom of my Maverick. Regular boat soap won't touch it. What does everyone recommend to take this off and what wax does everyone like?

 

Thanks, Jack

This stuff is incredible! I put it in a spray bottle and mist the bottom with it when needed. Stains come off the second this stuff touches them. Highly acidic stuff though. I cover trailer and spray a small area at a time then immediately rinse thoroughly. I have been using it on all my boats for over 20 years with no adverse side effects. I get it at Publix, Ace Hardware, or Lowe’s.

I like Star Brite instant hull cleaner or CLR. All of the stain removing products will strip away the wax on your hull; some more than others. 

I use the Star Brite hull cleaner wax with a coat of Star Brite polish over top.

Star Brite instant hull cleaner main ingredient is Oxalic acid. I think Muriatic is much stronger than Oxalic. I spray it on my hull and rinse it off minute or two later. Haven't noticed any reaction or damage to my aluminum trailer but I wouldn't risk letting it sit on there for very long just in case!

Thank you for all the replies I tried the Starbrite hull cleaner and was amazed with the results. Though there would be some serious elbow grease involved but that was not the case!

Thanks again,

Jack

I would say don' use it too frequently.  Over time and lots of use I'm pretty sure it will etch the surface and stains will become worse. Best if you can wax the area after use. Its great stuff, I use it about once a year.
