How To Clean GRP Boats

Post by Dances With Otters » November 22nd, 2018, 10:03 pm

I must share with you my latest discovery which has revolutionised my ability to clean even rust marks of GRP (fibreglass) boats.
It is simply to use "Cillit Bang".
That stuff is single handed the dogs B*l*o*k* when it comes to boat cleaning.
I had to Google it to find out what it was made of and it appears to be containing industrial strength cleaning products, so that explains it. :D

Oxalic acid is what I use, it comes in powder form and you mix it with warm water and put it in a garden sprayer (oxalic acid comes from rhubarb) this is the same stuff as star bright hull cleaner. Oxalic acid can be bought of eBay for about £7 a tub and it will last you for years
A boat makes a big hole in the water in to which you throw money

It's the degreaser, very impressive, as I am so used to things being crap today.
