FSR its a blue gel...stands for Fiberglass Stain Remover...on dry hull just put it on a brush or towel and wipe it, turns scum line White instantly.

If you like On-Off but are tired of getting Ripped-Off, go to a pool store or even Lowes and get a gallon of Muriatic Acid for $4.00 a gallon. Same stuff.

Might be, in which case the cost gets even cheaper. Add water and now it's $2.00 per gallon. On-Off is muriatic acid.

I spray the bottom every so often with Power One and wash off with water. Might have to do it a couple of times, but it will come white clean. Once you begin you have to do the whole bottom.

NO! On/Off will get it clean at the expense of the acid damage to the gel coat. It does work though...

I recommend Ring-Go and used to sell it. If you can't find it anywhere online let me know. I can probably contact my supplier and get some more cases but I have to do a large purchase since they don't sell small quantities (singe bottle).

They are 32oz. large bottles and one will last at least 3-4 years if you use it 1-2 times per year if you want a perfectly white boat all the time. I use it maybe once a season and mine is pristine. It is THE BEST product that does NOT cause damage to the gel coat and takes off water/scum stains, rust stains, etc. It will not remove growth (only a pressure washer does) but it gets virtually all stains out without removing wax or pitting. It is also the EASIEST product to use that I've ever come across after 30 years of boating/cleaning. Simply wipe on since it has the consistency of liquid soap, let sit 5-10 minutes and then spray off. DONE.

It doesn't get any easier than that! On/Off can't compete and I have used them all. Do a search for Ring-Go here cause I have sold it to hundreds of OSO'ers over the years.

PS - if memory serves I think I used to charge $15 plus shipping ($5-$7 UPS) a few years ago when I last did it. I don't make any real money at it and when I exhausted my cases that were required to get from the manufacturer I stopped. I was just doing it to help out OSO'ers who needed the best product.

I agree. Not only does it work well but it seems to keep the hull cleaner afteer you apply it. Their other products only seem to be so so but the power one is amazing stuff! Plus if you get on off on a galvy or allum trailer it makes a mess! I got some of the Power One on my trailer and it just made that area shiny!
