Default hull stains

I just picked up some hull cleaner this weekend that ended up being nothing short of amazing. Its called PowerOne and its a simple wipe on wipe off product. Where i boat just a few days in the water leaves a rusty brown discoloration and up until now i was using SnoBowl with ok results but took some elbow grease. I just put this stuff on a rag and wiped it on a dry surface and the stains disappear. Anyone ever use this product?

one of the guys that races in Class 5 had a table set up and sells it, he's on here as Heater63. I'll try and find some contact info or website. I spent an entire day de-staining the bottom of the boat last time a had it in but with this stuff i can see that being cut down to about a half hour at most.

"Fountain of youth" product...

Half the cost of on/off and works as well or better... with significantly less fumes.

In fact, All of their products are awesome and environmentally friendly.

I assume it is a acid like Starbrite hull cleaner?

I just pulled my boat out and the hull is nasty! I pressure washed it but that didn't help. I just ordered some of this stuff and I'll take before and after pics.

Whatever you use be careful with outboards.

I have same problem as Dave with crap growin on hull after a few short days.

Last year my marina pulled the boat out and cleaned it using the same methods and chemicals that they use on all the boats there.

The 8 side saddles made of plastic on the lower units of the Verados turned almost white. Over $ 2000.00 damage.

tried a few. On/off works very well. I can go 1/2 strength mixed down with water and still get goo results.
