What do you guys use to clean the deck on your bay boats that will make them white again.

Soft scrub watered down a bit and a stiff bristled brush and a pressure washer. Rinse really well. Once finished with that I throw some auto wax on a rag and wipe it down while it is still wet. No need to buff to a shine or anything. Boat looks like new again.

get some of "The Works", cleaning aisle section of your local Wal-Mart, Dollar store or grocery store and it'll work - just wash and rinse - even removes any rust or other type stains, etc.

softscrub with bleach, after duck season by boat is FILTHY, power wash all the mud, blood and guts off, then the soft scrub, works really well, I dont think my boat has ever seen wax but I hear it works to avoid staining

Comet and a scrub brush is still hard to beat.

I know a guy that uses the car wash all the time and uses the tire cleaner to completely drench his boat. He then scrubs the real bad spots and then he washes it off with soapy water then rinses the entire boat and rods (not direct spray but mist to clean salt...AND tire cleaner off).
He keeps his boat clean. Not sure how good it is on his rods but he said he has no issues yet.

Power washer held about 3 inches from the surface. Of course, I have a Logic which is basically Tupperware.

So, I guess I probably wouldn't try it unless your boat is also Tupperware.

tried KaBoom bath tub cleaner today on the brown water stain on the outside of my hull and it took it off with very little scrubbing. i was amazed. always used the muratic acid type hull cleaner. this is works real good and is much easier on my lungs. oh yeah, i got it at Lowe's.

My buddy has a Nautic Star with that diamond pattern non-skid floor and it's a biotch to clean. We use a 3400Lb pressure washer on it.

I'm refinishing the deck of my Kenner right now with Interlux non skid and expect to have to do the same. Hopefully not.

Zep purple degreaser. I get it a Home Depo. I put it in a garden sprayer with water. Spray the boat down and work in with deck brush. Let it sit about five and brush again. Rinse
I also have a pressure washer
