Brown mustache

I just noticed that my boat has the ICW brown mustache.

How does one go about getting rid of that?

Then clean it up and coat with something like Rejex. Whatever you use get in the habit of hosing off that part of the hull whenever you can.

Good off rust stain remover and sprinkler stain remover works good. Pretty sure it's just oxalic acid.

Lemon Juice works well also. Then a coat of Rejex as stated helps slow it's growth.

The toilet bowl cleaner you get at Dollar store will take care of it.

Wear it as a mark of how well you are using your boat until the next time you have it detailed!

We use, The Works, purchased from the dollar store then take a sponge mop and Mop & Glow to get the shine back on the bow. Will look great!!. We boat on the Tenn. River and after every river trip we have a brown mustache.

+1. You can buy it on Amazon for about $20.00 for 5 pounds. 12 ounces mixed to a gallon of water is all that's required. Be ready to go down to the post office to pick it up. They seem to have an issue with white powder in the mail lately.

Goof Off

Use a very small amount and just wipe over the area. Watch the stain disappear then rinse.

Sigh.

All these shiny unused boats plying our waterways.

I wonder if you worry as much about cleaning your cars or roofs?

Any mild acid based product will work.
