    Cleaning skum line

    Anyone have any good suggestions for cleaning skum off black hull. It's not real heavy but I want to get it cleaned up and buffed out..

    Mix some Simple Green up in a bucket and wash bottom of hull, then rewash with normal car wash. I would wax it afterwards. Here is a pick of mine, it had sat in the lake for 6 days. I then attached a after wash shot. Clean!!!Click image for larger version.

    Why is it so tough? Do you leave it in the water for extended periods of time?

    I would use a quality automotive all purpose cleaner. Soak it in the APC, pressure wash off, wash the sides with the same APC and a mitt. If anything is left, I would try a claybar.

    If it's real bad water stains and nothing else works use muratic acid. Takes it right off. Just be carefull not to get it on trailer or it will discolor.

    Nah...use this stuff. Specifically meant for marine use. Use rubber gloves though. Works great!

    And then you can use the leftover to cook up some meth. Everyone wins!

    I've used a few products over the years.... the best are the "Mary Kate on/off" and "Zing". They both work well. Just spray it on, let it sit a few minutes and pressure wash it off. Just be careful and spray downwind, its strong stuff. Use rubber gloves and eye/face protection too.
