I did this last summer and was very pleased with the results!

one of the lakes we run on leavesa brown scummy film on the hull....
I used one of these with CLR and it worked to clean the hull effortlessly

spray, and rinse...... by the time I started and got to the other end, it was time to rinse

You have got to watch out for overspray. You don't want to breathe the mist I am sure it gives off coming out of that thing.

I am not sure I'd use it on gelcoat, but I'd watch someone try it on thiers.

At first glance I thaught it was a brilliant Idea. Howevere CLR will strip any wax you had on your boat right off. It won't hurt the gelcoat though that stuff is pretty forgiving. There is a product out called Duckey that is good for removing hard water spotts and won't strip the wax off of your boat.

I kind of like stripping the wax every so often, CLR has to be easier than using a clay bar.

Use it couple of times a yesr. River has extremely hard water, water spots from the second you launch your boat. Just need to wax every time you use the stuff.

I found that THE WORKS (http://www.theworkscleans.com/tub.htm), works best for cleaning hard water and soap scum out of the shower, but it is nasty stuff.

You can try it on your boat and let me know how it works...

Man, unless you leave a boat in all summer they don't get any growth or staining up here, and waterspots only if the hull is black.

Lucky me.

That's what we've been using for years.Spray it on and by the time ya get around the boat, spray it off, but it does take some of the wax.I rewax every third time I spray, or about twice a season.We don't use it on interior though some people do.
