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

these are products I've used since 2003 on a brown Crestliner FH1750 and a black Alumacraft Competitor 1650... still have original bottles, the polish does a great job ( for me ) after initial cleaning, just use the polish occasionally... just another option... there is definitely scores of good products

eyewalls, I don't know, this is the first time I had the boat out since picking it up from the dealer, brand new boat, I don't know if they waxed it or not.

I am taking it in to have them install the numbers on the boat, I will have to ask them at that time.

Will the 50/50 mix take off the wax you have on it?

On Sunday, I mixed up a 50 / 50 spray bottle of vinegar / water and tried about half of the boat, seems to work wonderful. I think that's the way I'm going to be going on this. Then give it a good wax job. Going to let the dealer install my reg. numbers first.

I think it may be wise to wipe it down after every trip on the water, only takes about 10-15 minutes, I can keep the spray and rags right in the boat.

I think the trick may be not to let the water spots sit on the boat for too long, mine were only on there not quite a week and they came right off.

I appreciate all of the responses, you guys are a great help.

Vinegar and water,get the industrial strength if possible.Simple green to get the scum lines off,at close to full strength.Other stuff works,but why pay more?

Another vote for vinegar and water for wax I really like Turtle Wax Ice easy on does not turn trim white and lasts a dang long time. I use it on all my vehicles and boat .

When I bought my black Crestliner the dealer gave me a bottle of Boat Bling Hot Sauce, said it was the best stuff that he knew of. My boat and motor get a polish with this at the end of the season and it makes it look like new. Still got plenty left in original bottle after 3 seasons so haven't googled the price for a new bottle yet.

I also have a black Lund (aluminum) and the last 2 years I’ve been using a mix of 1 part vinegar and 4 parts water. It still takes a little elbow grease with a cotton rag, but works really well. Haven’t noticed any I’ll effects like fade or decals coming off.
