Chalky white residue on bottom of hull.

So I have a chalky residue on the bottom of my black hull . Was wondering if anyone has any experience with a product to remove this? I have tried CLR, heavy compound and a wool pad. Not sure how long it has been there bought the boat about a year ago and it came preinstalled by the previous owner...

Try some toilet bowl cleaner (The works). Keep it off your trailer/driveway/anything else really. Might try a sample spot and see how it works before you go after the entire hull.

Nope no bubbles if it needs an acid bath I may drive up the road and pay the dealer. I normally do everything myself but this just seems easier standing up then pulling it out in my Gravel driveway in a hazmat suit and face mask to clean it...

This stuff works but protect your eyes, skin, and clothing from this stuff.

When I did mine. I did it in a gravel driveway and I spilled some on the gravel and it started smoking. I can't believe how strong that stuff is.
