50/50 white vinegar and water + a little elbow grease

a nice coat of wax power buffed in will help reduce future spots (if you rinse it off with fresh water and dry well after each use)

That's what I've heard the most. Figured that would be everyone's preference.

Tried and true, without a fancy name.

My boat stays outside all year round, too tall for garage. 50/50 has worked so well, the Boat Bling, Hot Sauce, and Duckys are all sitting on the shelf in the garage.

Babe's spot remover has been our savior! Our lake has hard water, 50/50 did not work.

Mine is dark blue, so almost as bad as black for spots. I use 3M Finesse-It II and a Dewalt power buffer to get rid of spots. Then wax and the buffer will keep them away for a little while. I've tried vinegar and hot sauce but they don't work too well for me.

Some people have tried CLR/water that may work also. Haven't found anything that will just wipe water spots off though. I don't think that exists.

All black hull here. Wipe down at the ramp. If you wipe it down while it’s wet, you will have less work. I get home and wipe with an spray auto detailer spray n shine type of product. Boat bling is the way to go for sure.
If you are storing outside, find a shipping cover so you have better protection from the elements. This will also extend the life of your factory cover

Hula Boat Care Gnarly Waterspot Remover works great for me.

I love babes products. Tried the hot sauce or whatever it is and wasn’t a fan
