    Removing Barnacles From Hull

    I had a chance this Summer to keep a Jet Ski with our boat in the Marina. After 10 weeks I found a lot more Barnacles then I expected on the bottom. I have scraped them off, but a lot of little white circles remain. Are there any secrets to removing them or will they eventually wear away.

    They're not as aggressive and won't scratch the gel coat as bad, try it with the pad wet first, if that doesn't then go with a dry one, easier to buff back out
