How to Clean a dirty bottom
My new boat was left to sit in a freshwater slip for who knows how long. There is a about an inch of of algae dried on the bottom and the boat is on a trailer.
I was told to use a caustic style bottom cleaner but read the label about proper disposal of the run off and chose to try a biodegradable cleaner first. I have made one attempt to clean the bottom and had to apply the cleaner and then scrape it off. It was tough slow work and with limited access because of the trailer.
I plan on putting the boat in a freshwater lake today and see if the algae softens up and will come off easier.
I am looking for any suggestions on how to get the bottom clean. This is my only day off this week and I plan on cruising this weekend, so I hope to get it clean today.
