Unfortunately, I do not have a lift and I keep my boat at a slip during the summer.  What products are you guys using to remove scum lines that have also calcified?  If I use my fingernail, it comes off fairly easy.

Apologize, if this is a common question but I searched and couldn't find any info.

Thanks for the help

Its been asked, but I'll still respond. 

Starbrite hull cleaner. wear a respirator, put the stuff in a spray bottle, and mist it onto the hull for best coverage. mist one side (port or starboard) then go back to where you started (to give the solution a few mins to set in) and use a soft bristle brush with some water. It'll come right off. 

You'll likely have a few stubborn spots, but just repeat. 


Theres also a gel, but if you use the liquid stuff in a spray bottle, it works better and you use less of it. One bottle lasts me 2 seasons. Each season I clean twice, each time cleaning, I spray the boat twice to get full clean.

Agreed on the Starbrite. I usually dilute with water in bucket and apply with brush, but I just get discoloration from a weekend floating in the water on one of the lakes we stay at. It doesn't take much, and it works like a magic eraser! The spray bottle sounds like a good idea for a thick scum line.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
