Sno Bowl if its not to bad. If it gets bad just use some muratic acid in a pump garden sprayer.

Remember to wet your trailer with water first. I have to use a brush sometimes to get all of the stain out. Sno Bowl is what I use.

On/Off is an acid - the more you use it the more your boat will tend to yellow. That is because On/Off eats into the Gelcoat.

Look for a product called Ringo at a pool store. No fumes, No acid and you came apply with your hands. It will not damage your gel - best "secret" product I have ever found!!!!

Ringo is a thick red gel - and works great!

Ringo is better..but read the ingredients... Acid and gelcoat do not mix well over the long haul.. Yes, a quick fix, and even after waxing with a carnauba based product like someone mentioned above... the yellowing will come back. Gelcoat must be neutralized first. Use a good salt/soap remover and then followed up with the Leverage polymer sealer which has the longest lasting results.

The fiberglass soap and salt deposit remover can also be used in flushing your motors out guys, thats also what we designed it for. Remember one cap from the 32OZ bottle is all that is needed to clean a 32' boat. Extremely cost effective, Very low suds, and then leaves a clean shiny protected surface. The polish the majority of you on here know how it works. Thanks Jeff

Imron. DuPont makes it. Sand, prep, spray it on, buff - Done. Just towel it off each time you come out.



To be constructive: We found Star-Brite Hull Cleaner to be both more way effective and far less harsh than On/Off. It still strips the wax, though - hence the Imron treatment, which solved the problem.

That is true I have found the same thing I use bushing wax for electrical transformers. Also slimy Grimey is biodegradable if you are worried about stuff like that

I had a suggestion put forth to me the other day while anchored out with some buddies of mine.

One of the guys put Silicon spray on their dinghy to ward this off and had great results.

Has anyone ever tried this??
