Best Cleaning for this..
Just got this ski and the ride plate has this white very rough oxidation, if you will, on it. I tried scrubbing with rough sponge and water but no luck. Not the best pic, but the only pic I have where you can see the ride plate at the bottom. Curious as to what will clean this off, should any light sanding get involved?

get some Comet and a red scotch brite. Go to town and what ever's left in the pits is left.

Comet as in the stuff in the Green can? Interesting.. Once I get to the pit, will sanding help any? And again, if I do sand is there any good coating that will stick good?

Yes the stuff in the green can. If it's worth keeping then we soda blast it and zinc chromate it before paint. You cannot get all the corrosion out of the pits. The small stuff that isn't worth going through the trouble with we just zinc chromate and paint over with something durable.
I'm also betting the bolts that hold it in won't be the easiest to remove. Make sure you have an easy-out on hand before removing that plate.

Ok. Yeah I am not planning on removing the plate, just planning on lying underneath the machine
Thanks for the help I'll give these ideas a good try!

This might sound obvious but make sure you wear gloves and eye protection if you're laying down there. Safety first!
