I am a big fan of Slimey Grimey. It's more dilute--more than strong enough to do the job but not so strong as to pose a hazard to your concrete, your grass, your trailer, your clothes, or you.

Other options include Mary Kate's On-Off, Zing, Starbrite Hull Cleaner. You can also make your own solution out of toilet bowl cleaner....Me?...I'd rather not screw around with that and just buy it ready to go off the shelf. Simpler/safer IMHO.

The stuff is very easy to use...usually no more difficult than daubing it on (no scrubbing required), letting it sit for a minute or two, and hosing it off.

I love the lines of this boat. I don't think I have ever seen another 92 open bow on here before.
My 12 year old. Never happier on Lake Stevens WA

Got the decals stripped off the one side today. Gonna do the other tomorrow, then wax 'er up. Focusing on the boat for now. Trailer refurbish/repaint to black will happen next year probably.

Thanks. I just wish I didn't have to keep it outside.

Gotta get the black off the rubrails and reteak the deck as well. Notice the guide pole covers. Got 'em from www.maddogproducts.com and they're really nice sunbrella ones. Hopefully that'll cure the black plastic marring the tan rubrail for good.

You would probably cry if you saw how dirty mine is. It sits in the water all summer, but the tradeoff is that it gets used exponentially more. She gets a good cleaning every couple of weeks, but tough to keep things spotless.

One post above yours is my O/B but I don't have the BBC.
