CORRECT ANSWER....

I always rinse the boat off when putting back on the lift.. the problem lies in the water that stays on the top deck.. It's a PITA when you have company there.. so as a quick fix vs shamming off the water.. I grab my blower and do it that way. much quicker. Jeff

I have used vinegar before but found that it is sometimes not strong enough to take off some of the stubborn hard water spots. Lime-a-way has always done the job for me and does not hurt the finish. It is not to be used on polished aluminum though.

I have a lot of calcium in my water, I am curious if it would filter it out. I tried the Mr. Clean filter and it helped a little but not 100%.

This works great. But a friend told me about adding a bit of wax to the solution a few years ago, and I'm a believer. This will keep a coat of wax on the boat, because the vinegar will strip it. I use it on all the watercraft now. The water on the Colorado river is hard as rock, and leaves a mess when baked on at 115degrees.

10%wax/ 45%distilled water/ 45% white vinegar.
