I used ZING this fall. Pretty nasty stuff as all acid washes will be. I used a garden sprayer to apply the the acid wash to the bottom. Worked really well. Just need to thoroughly wash everything up after you're done.

Are you using the Shower Shield on the hull to prevent water spots?

I used some Stuff from West Marine, Called NanoWax for Fiberglass and Gelcoats. Need to see how long it lasts...

I was looking for a product that might last all season. anyone ever try Nufinish? or any products that last long time?

Hull cleaners
 
In response to the inquiry about what to use as a hull cleaner on your boat, you could use any number of products that contain corrosive and abrasive substances. Or you could ignore all the harmfull stuff and go to www.zipaway.net and check out their completey non-toxic, non-corrosive line of products. Everything from your bilge to your top deck can be completely cleaned without using any of the harmfull stuff, and these are the guys that have it.

Question - After you use one of the "acid-based" products to wash the hull, you need to re-wax it right? I believe the acid strips off all the wax.

All the wax and the outer layers of skin on your hands if you don't wear gloves.

I had the same propblem + some shells from the sea,nothing took them off. And I made WetSand Paper (#3000 used ones) after that hard paste/polish.

Or...you could use a product that's designed and marketed specifically for use on gelcoat instead of toilets.

Ok, so a Mastercraft is not a toilet, but I tried this for the first time and it's so easy it feels like cheating!
Couple of bottles of The Works toilet bowl cleaner in a garden sprayer, and an open hose in the other. Just spray it down, and rinse it off 10 seconds later; perfectly clean!
I already tried purple power, simple green, and a few other things, all with lots of scrubbing and little effect.
Shouldn't really have to do this again, as I won't be leaving it in the water (unlike the previous owner), so it should stay pretty clean after a good wax job.
I made sure to thouroughly rinse down the bunks, trailer, and cement driveway with plenty of water.
I did make the mistake of getting a bit on the rudder, so for now I've got a half pink rudder (looks like a penny after sitting in vinegar). Hopefully it'll oxidise again so it looks better.
