on off cleaner, kills everything or paracid hd i think it is, or oxcalic acid, not sure on spelling of last, check to make sure they are fine for paint if your boat is painted, and do not get them on plastics

I boat on the upper Ohio Slimy Grimey mix it with water and use a sprayer I use a garden sprayer it is the best, I use everytime I pull out acid (toliet bowl cleaner and muric acid) will eat trailer paint.

After you get it off using those recommendations above, wax it with Collinite Heavy Duty Paste Fleet Wax No. 885. I started using it this year (4th year boating on the Mississippi River) and it is the best I have used yet. Lasts by far the longest and really helps prevent staining.

If you use ON/OFF make sure you do not have an galvanized trailer!

Default on-off

on-off is about the best i have found.i get the same crap on my fountain.only thing about the on-off.you must wax the area you clean,and the more you use the cleaner the more you have to clean/wax.hope this helps.
