Default bottom cleaning

What cleaning maintance do you do to the bottom of your boat? I use my boat in freshwater and trailer. Do you wax , use leverage or just wash and dry?

Thanks, Steve

I wash the bottom when I wash the boat, but only usually wax twice a year (when I wax the rest of the boat).

Fountain of youth, Power 1. Peels a weekend of Buckeye Lake scum off with zero scrubbing. It will make the hull bright white. I wax it with their vitreo a few times a year also.

Wash with soap after every use and twice a year use ON/OFF. Just as white as the day I bought it!
