Thread: Water Spots?
07-12-2008, 03:02 PM #1
The past 2 times I have come back from lake lewisville my black hull has real bad water spots all over it. The worst part is is they dont come off, I have tried soap and water, just rubbing the crap out of it, Wax, Rubbing compound, Nothing seems to work and get them off. It makes the ski look like crap. Any ideas on what to use to get them off and keep them off?

Scrubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner works pretty well, last time mine were really spotted up I actually washed them and then waxed them with Zymol, it took the damn spots right off and left a showroom shine on them, I was shocked at how easy/well it worked. Give it a try and you will not be dissapointed.

I just tried a 50 50 mixture and I dont seem to be having the same effects, Does it just take alot of elbow grease or should it just come right off. Also how in the world did you get rid of the smell lol?

Wipe your skis off after you get them on the trailer, just rinse them off and immediately run a towel over them and you will never have water spots. If you leave the water on in the sun the spots can etch into the finish.

Under the rub-rail, I use a product called WonderFoam. But it really needs to be rinsed all the way off.
Above the rail, Meguiars Water Spot remover.
I ride in the Phoenix area. Really hard water here that spots everything. I gave up trying to keep up with it. I clean the spots off my Sea Doos once a year with these products and they come out like new.

I used Kaboom bathroom cleaner after the ski had been in the water for a week(colorado river.-harsh)and the spots came right off. I think most of the mild bathroom cleaners are going to work simularly. A word of caution, a buddy sprayed it on his jet boat and let it sit on there too long and it streaked/etched his anodized trim.

From the car detailing world......clay bar with LOTS of quick detailer to keep it slick. I used this with some success on a dark green GTX.
The minerals from the spots embed into the gelcoat a bit easier than automotive clear coats.
Even if the spots don't come completely off, it will blow you mind how smooth the surface will be when you wax it
