Saw this post some time ago, cant find it now. I thought it said if you use a mixture 50/50 mix of water and vinegar it would take the water scum off the sides and back of the boat. I could be wrong also.I have an older boat but I still like to keep it fairly clean, cant afford a new one unless I win the lottery, fat chance of that happening lol

easiest way I have found, works well on aluminum boats, not sure on glass....REALLY works on aluminum p'up rims and chrome....get wet, spray on and let sit (not long) wipe off, then I just use the spray on wipe wax on it......

50/50 is what I use after fishing the Wisconsin River. I wash the boat with water to get big stuff off , then the 50/50 vinager/water mix. cotton cloth seems to work well after you spray on the mix. Rinse off real well when done scrubbing.

my sons white nitro gets a scum line only in certain waters and it will not come off with vinegar and water only the boat wash from walmart.

x2 on the water/vinegar mix.Works great. I add about 10% windex to the solution and get a nice luster to it.

To the OP. You are absolutely correct that a mixture of 50% distilled water and 50% vinegar is a fantastic mixture to remove water scum. I have been at this boating game over 35 years and have yet to see or use a commercial product that works better. Put it in a spray bottle and spray a fine mist on (The motor, water line, electronic, etc) Let is sit for a minute or 2 and wipe it off. If makes things look like new.

I also use Bass Boat Saver which does add a protective coverage, but the Vinegar and Water is a better cleaner.

I use Star Brite Hull Cleaner that you can get at Fleet Farm. This stuff makes it super easy to clean my boat.

Just Ducky has worked really well for me on my aluminum Lund and outboard, but you need to follow instructions and reapply in heavy water stain areas sometimes. I then put two coats of wax on as much of the boat and motor as possible.

Someone read my mind on this one. I just sat down to ask what to do to get water scum off. I will for sure try the vinegar and water solution then move on from there.

Thanks
