    What to use for cleaning inside of the hull ?

    Is there anything that can be used to clean the stains on the inside of the hull for a GPR/XLT ? Motor is out so I can use just about any solvent.

    Cleaner/Degreaser and Acetone wont touch it.

    Here's a few before and after pics of my hull. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=52555

    I used a spackle knife for the big stuff, then a big brush and greased lightning for the rest. Keep the nose jacked up, and don;t fill up the hull with water because it will get between the liner. What you see in the pic is the cleanest it can get. They use a different grade of smc for the liner

    I used some good old carb cleaner and a rag. I started at the top and worked to the bottom of the hull. Then took a vaccum and sucked the debris. Some might say its harsh but it evaporates and leaves no wet spots, all dry.

    Put a little bit of Tide in the bottom and put some water in the hull (not too much). Drive around showing off your ski on the trailer letting the soapy mixture slosh around cleaning the hull. Take out you drain plugs and there you go! A clean inside hull and a wonderfully fresh scent! Seriously, this really works.

    Tide and a scrub brush does work good.

    I absolutely do not recommend this!!!! I had an issue a couple seasons ago at the river with my ski. I did a little disassembly on the trailer and found an air leak at the intake, left it on trailer and towed it home. I forgot I had disconnected the fuel lines. I had a couple inches of fuel in my hull when I got home. I got rags and wiped it all up. All I can say is the hull never looked better.
