Okay guys, I know there is a lot out there on the internet on water spot removal for boats, but has anyone really had a good solution that works for them ?

I've heard about the vinegar and water and all other types of cleaners, but what really, really works ?

I have a black lund that is getting the dreaded spots.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for all of the suggestions guys, I am going with the 50/50 vinegar water mix and maybe once a month give it a quick spray wax job. Like I said before, about 10 minutes to clean it, maybe 15 minutes to wax it, inexpensive and it works very nicely.

50% water 50% distilled white vinegar

That's all you need to clean off water spots

I used to do the vinegar/water stuff...and I used to use a nice high end wax for the boat.

Friend of mine turned me onto ceramic.  HydroSilex.

HydroSilex

It is expensive, the the cleaner removes all the crud, wash gets it very clean.  Ceramic wax is the bomb.  No water lines or scum line.

I pretty much do that once a year and the boat is good to go.  Sometimes I wipe it down after a use, sometimes I don't.

And...I have a glass boat.  Unsure of how this would work on metal.  Probably very good, I just don't know.

This forum is awesome.  I have used it for so many different things while fixing and buying a boat.  I tried the Boat Bling Hot Sauce after the water spots were on the boat for a couple weeks it worked very good.  It took of the scum line too with very little effort.  Left a very nice wax like shine.


Tried vinegar and water that worked ok but the Hot Sauce is the deal.

Spoke with the service man at the dealer as he was putting on the registration decals, and I think I'm going to use vinegar and water and get a spray wax. It only takes about 10 minutes to do the whole thing if you do it right away, effective, inexpensive and it works.....thanks for all the recommendations guys...stay safe out there !!!

I have a Black and White Alumacraft. I have been washing and hand drying off to prevent water spots or using vinegar and water to get spots off for a couple of years. I started using The Last Coat ceramic wax, it takes water spots off and waxes at same time. It is a lot easier to wipe off, no rubbing like vinegar and it puts a hell of a shine on boat.

Yes, vinegar removes wax. It is mildly acidic.
