stains on hull

what does anyone recommend to clean off iron water stains on the hull of the boat? My neighbor uses soft scrub on his, but not sure I want to try this on my 205V. Thanks.

I have used CLR mixed with dish soap to get it to cling for longer with good results in the past.

Sno Bowl can work wonders, too. Hose it off good and wax afterwards.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Very diluted Hydrochloric acid does the trick - make sure you ware rubber gloves and safty glasses - and use in a well ventilated area. Nasty stuff but takes the labor out of it.
