Boneclavers dilema...

At the boneclave I will most likely be spending about 4 days camping with my boat anchored up. I am a trailer boater so the boat has never sat in the water overnight and always gets cleaned after each trip. Saying I am anal about its appearance is a gross understatement. It still burns me when I see one tea stain that is barely visible and under the boat. What can I do besides giving it a fresh waxing to prevent any staining or growth on the boat? I think I remember reading somewhere that there is an anti-fouling wax but not sure that is what I am looking for considering the amount of time I will be in the water. I am thinking scum lines will be more of an issue. Maybe an enviornmentally friendly soap and a brush and give it a quick saltwater scrubbbing.

Thanks,

Sean

Juro,

Do you know Don Julio? We became very familiar with him in Cozumel at $30US a bottle. The blanco was supreme.

4 days should not give you too much problems. Also there is a product (by 3M I think) that takes growth off easily & quickly. FWIW I don't have bottom paint either and the 3m product get's the hull looking like new. (I'll try to find the exact name for you)

I'll bet it tasted even better in those surroundings!

On topic, I wonder if there's a good polymer wax for boat hulls out there. It's been a long time but I used to apply polymers to cars for cash on the side. The rust resistance and finish protection was pretty amazing. In fact the dealership guys had me do their own private cars after the customer testimonials.

After a quick google search it would seem that there are some with names like Liquid Glass and Kiss-Cote. I have no direct experience with them since I sold my boat and won't own another until the kids are past college age.

Based on responses here and elsewhere it sounds like I am worried about nothing. I have been pretty happy with the Collinite Insulator wax and there pre wax hull cleaner is some sweet stuff. For the decks I think Woody Wax is top notch including their metal sealer for the brightwork. I guess that long weekend will be the real test.

Well Sean let it be known that I am first in line to purchase your boat when you are ready to upgrade, the way you care for it.

My kids will be done with school in a few years so keep up the regimen

Juro,

I may take care of it but I also run it. 325 hours on the F150 in just about 1.5 seasons. Might need a repower by the time you are ready!

I would worry more about your truck parked in the lot with no one around for a couple of days. One year a bunch of kids smashed windshields. A little algae is not going to hurt but a broken windshield will . FishHawk

Boneclaveers dilemma...

Think they'll bash the windshield on my mini-van?

Best regards,

Doc,

Are you still running Brian Casey's Cobia and towing it with the mini-van?

Our friends in the PD will be keeping an eye on them for us, we just need to be careful to park according to regs.

FWIW, I've found that the FSR - fiberglass stain remover works well and being a gel it doesn't drip all over the trailer like the other more corrosive hull cleaners. I had the boat over at Washburn for 5 days this Summer and it was one nasty looking rig when I pulled it. I'm not too picky about the looks, a little off color doesn't bother me but growth is another matter. FSR did the trick.

Power wash/car wash will knock off the scum.
