what does anyone recommend to clean off iron water stains on the hull of the boat? My neighbor uses soft scrub on his, but not sure I want to try this on my 205V. Thanks.

I have used CLR mixed with dish soap to get it to cling for longer with good results in the past.

my dealer recommended and uses a product called "On Off"...got one small spot on my '85 that i'm trying to get off where the lift bunks would trap water against the hull...

Starbrite Hull Cleaner. Spray it on & hose it off. Available at West Marine, US Boat or Walmart.

Sno Bowl can work wonders, too. Hose it off good and wax afterwards.

Very diluted Hydrochloric acid does the trick - make sure you ware rubber gloves and safty glasses - and use in a well ventilated area. Nasty stuff but takes the labor out of it.
