Muriatic acid on hull
Season is now officially done. Boat pulled and blocked yesterday. As you can see there is a pretty bad scum line. I spent the afternoon with some hot water and a bottle of Starbrite hull cleaner and it took most of the tea stain off and some of the growth line, but not all of it. I'm hesitant to use Muriatic acid, but everyone at the marina tells me it's the only thing that will take that off.
Was going to put some in a spray bottle, apply, let sit a half a minute, give it a scrub and rinse it off. There's no running water where the boat is blocked, I have to bring it in pails and use a garden sprayer.
Am I headed for disaster? Should I just live with the little bit of stain that's left?
Sorry, never thought to take an "after" pic, it does look much better, but still a grey stain from front to back. The tea stain under the swim platform came off beautifully with the Starbrite though.
