Re: whats the best way to clean a fouled bootstripe?
Use as little abrasive as possible so one does not scratch the boot strip. Other wise you'll see the scratches highlighted the next time you wax the haul.
I use a natural sponge and high pressure hose..or if I dive on the boat..sponge and glove to generally clean the top sides. Some 'professional' divers that I've observed use a supposed soft bristle/nylon brush..but that in itself will scratch the boot strip..
