Cleaning water spots

Question

eyepatrol

***I mean "SPOTS" not "Sports"*** confused.gif

I'm trying to get the windshield and motors on my boat cleaned as spotless as possible, but have a few water spots on each that I'm having difficulty getting off.

Any suggestions or potions to get rid of them? I've heard that a vinegar/water mix will do the trick, but I'm hesitant on doing that since I've no idea if that would hurt or damage them.

Thanks in advance.

I've used the vinegar/water "potion" and it gets the job done. I've never had any problems with it doing damage.

Thanks bassman. I'll give it a test try tomorrow. I've also got some carwash cleaner and might try that too.

Basscatcher-

I worked at Minnetonka Boatworks in the early 90's. All of the boats were cleaned with a vinegar/water solution. Weather it was a new boat delivery or the Twins player Chillie Davis's 35" Wellcraft docked at the marina. We sprayed it on all of the surfaces, vinyl, plastic, glass, fiberglass and the list goes on. No other cleaning products were used in cleaning other than a vaccum or boat wax.

I wouldn't worry one bit about using vinegar/water.

Clean away!

Thanks again for the Strikemaster blades, haven't found enough ice to try them out yet! I'll keep looking.

I use a product called Nautical Ease Water Spot Remover. Spay it on, hose it off. Works better than vinegar. I got it at Champion Auto,Ken

Just go with straight up Vinager. Wax afterwards.

Windex or Simple Green works well for the whole boat.

I mixed a 50/50 vinegar/water solution and it cleaned off all of the water spots and general Lake Minnetonka slime I have been struggling to get off.....and all without scrubbing! It works great! Thanks for the tip.

I just did mine with nautical ease (it's also biodegradeable) and my boat doesn't smell like a pickle tongue.gif

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
