Removing barnacles from outdrive
The lower unit of the outboard on my Quickstep is in the water constantly. This year, it got crusted with barnacles. I scraped the barnacles off while it was still wet, but each of the barnacles left a thin adhesive like circle behind that is completely resistant to a wire brush. Is there a trick to getting this stuff off?
It's a small motor, so it would be easy to dunk it in a bucket for a while.
