Has anybody tried the degreaser that comes in the Frenzy four pack for this? May give it a try this weekend in between rain showers.

Any ideas to get the mess out thats in the bilge farther up under the floor? I had a motor let go a few years back that filled up the bottom of the boat with 6qts of oil and all the water from the block. I still get some oil residue that comes back. I've filled up the bilge with water and everything from soap, simple green, laundry detergent then driven it on the trailer for 1/2 hour hoping the sloshing will clean it.

Get in there and get dirty and get at it or hire somebody with long skinny arms.

Yeah, I wouldn't use on/off in the bilge. Too much stuff to get ruined ie; wires, aluminum plating etc....

I used the Greased Lightning on the four wheeler today when I changed the oil. This was behind a plastic cover.

Hey, Mac!

That's our Orange Concentrate in the 4-Pack. It does a great job degreasing, cleaning, and breaking down the "gunk" without leaving white residue, harsh fumes, or risk of corrosion. We have the Super Degreaser, as well, which is also concentrated.
