Well I left my boat in the slip for a few weeks while I was waiting for the lift to arrive and uh-oh this green now brown scum is all over my boat. I trailer-ed the boat and gave it the old college try with a pressure washer and this s*** is not coming off. I tried some cleaner chemical "on and off" I believe. Now this will take it off but only a small area at a time and lots of fumes and scrubbing.
Is there a local service or company that can get my hull clean again?

Appreciate any info....

get some Hull Cleaner at Walmart or Academy. Wear gloves and eye protection....oscalic acid, something like that but it cleans. Wipe on, rinse. Been there and it works

I had a scum line that I tried all kind of hull cleaned on that did not work. I saw a post on here that used THE WORKS bowl cleaner so I did it and my hull is white again. Be sure to get some rubber gloves and just pore it on a rag and let it sit on the stan for about 30 minutes then just wash it off.

How about if the hull is black, what you recommend?

The Works toilet bowl cleaner. It doesn't harm the gel coat but does strip off wax.
