Wrktfsh I cleaned up an old resort boat I had using acidic tile cleaner after nothing else worked. CLR would be similar.

Correct.

CLR.

Calcium - Lime - Rust

Scott C. Just detailed my glass ski boat. It gets launched in May and pulled in November. Sat since then with scum growth. Nothing worked until I bought some Starbrite hull cleaner (Walmart carries it). Where rubber gloves and thoroughly rinse.

unchained also any recommendations for cleaning the area of the boat that is on the bunks when it's sitting in my driveway? besides getting some scuba gear and getting after it next time its in the water...

any recommendation for applying Iron Out?

The bottom of my hull is white but has a yellowish tinge to it so I tested a small area with Iron Out and it took the yellow off pretty well but just wondering if there's a technique for a wide area of the boat that you can recommend for application (other than sliding around in a rolling mechanic stool with a bucket of water!)

I use the Hot Sauce also, works great. I also use Meguiars Wash & Wax spray and it seems to help keep most of the scum off.
I personally would not use the toilet bowl cleaner as most of them have hydrochloric acid which I cannot believe would be good for paint.

Albertan Lots of videos on YouTube showing toilet bowl cleaner outperforming any dedicated marine product for fiberglass.
