Re: Am I Insane or What?
Lol, gotta love cleaning barnacles.
My advice is go to Lowes and buy a hoe, ya the gardening tool. Then take a blow torch and heat the neck where it bends 90 degrees untill it is red hot, then bend the neck out. This will give you a flat hoe that will make short work of barnacles. Sanding can take the residue off...
But if you are willing to play with chemicals, muratic acid will disolve the organic glue, and shells off in nothing flat. The only problem is it will also eat your flesh, metal, rocks, pavement, ect... Used sparingly it can make a slog of a clean up a breeze. Used in quantity it can make an even bigger mess.
