I used toilet bowel cleaner for a long time, but then I discovered FSR, or Fiberglass Stain Remover. The best stuff there is, you won't be disapointed at all.

Confused

I hope I'm not thread jacking, this just seems to be the place to ask.

I bought this boat last November and am in the process of cleaning it up before I put it on the lift. Everything cleaned up great except I cannot figure out what these white blotches are under the back half of the hull. the forward part is as it should be, and where the bunks are it seems to have worn off. When I rub my hand across the dull part (blotches) which looks like some kind of coating, it feels like oxidation and a white chalky substance comes off on the hand. What confuses me is that it is UNDER the hull where "the sun don't shine" and it's not over the entire bottom. Almost like some kind of anti fouling coating. But Really?? The shiny part on the picture is like the gel should be ..,smoooooth. Even more confusing, as the pic shows, that same stuff is on the prop shaft. I did lightly sand the shaft and it does come off. I just don't feel comfortable sanding the hull. Do any of you experts know of a cleaner that may take that off? I wonder if some sort of paint thinner or something of that nature might touch that stuff. It's not a big deal, but I think a smooooth hull would perform better,

Kaboom works awesome with very little elbow grease - wash the boat off after.

I wonder if Kaboom is bio-degradable? I would like to do this after it's on the lift. There just ain't no room crawling under the trailer.

Miguires Heavy oxidation remover worked wonders for me. Wipe on wipe off and follow with there marine wax.

due to budget and having 4 things of toilet bowl cleaner sitting around i tried to give this a shot( also didn't feal like ordering it and waiting).

by the time i could get a cloth to wipe it off all the pink was gone it was ridiculous. it didn't do anything to the chalky residue on the bottom(clr seams to get that though)

my only complaint is now it makes me realize instead of just the lower 1/3 i need to do the whole boat below the rub rail.

When I used to leave my I/O docked in the water, I would get this buildup from time to time (calcium). I don't want to lead you the wrong way but if I remember correctly a little CLR in a spray bottle and wash after worked. It has been 10 years so my memory may be incorrect.
