    Grass removal tool

    Years ago I seen a tool that was basically comb/rake that was suspended in the middle of a rope. looked like O------>>>><<<<------O
    You could throw over the bow and work side to side to pull out grass from the grate. Anyone know if anyone still makes such a tool?

    I recall such a thing, but I had forgotten about it.

    Lets see if someone knows the product name...

    Jump off ski, hold breath, go under, remove debris, resurface, reboard, ride. It's free and doesn't take up cargo space.

    Well that's what I had to do last weekend. I spoke to a guy that's been around skis for a while. He remembers the tool and said that the rakes has been known to brake off and get ingested. I'm sure with todays technology and the quality of today's "engineered materials" aka reinforced plastics someone would construct them.

    Not sure what you mean?

    The tool I saw was more like a back scrubber. It had some sort of rake that you pulled back and forth under the PWC. You sat on the PWC and ran it under the hull.

    JUmp off and clean sounds good unless you are in south Louisiana with the gators. I did that was the worst feeling that I was being watched. Not a pleasant experience.

    best method I've seen posted in this thread.
    If you're worried about 'gators - beach it, roll it on its side and clear it. Can't be any worse on the gelcoat than dragging a rake around on the bottom of the hull...

    maybe you could simply stay in deeper/clearer water and not have to deal with it at all...
