My husband and I bought a used pontoon boat in pretty good shape except the pontoon tubes or coated with a lot of scale from being left in the water for long periods of time. We want to clean it to be shiny again and want to know what to use to clean the scale and then what to use to polish it to get that shine again. Can anyone please help us?
My DH uses a pressure washer and all the gunk came right off.
I got a great tip from a friend, and just came in from using this product. Zing Formula IV.!!!! I swear by it. I inherited a '98 Crest pontoon, that had never been touched. I sprayed this on, it foamed up, and I rinsed it off. Pontoons are 95% back to original condition. i wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't done it myself.
Any other questions, please feel free to email me, theodore.kolks AT sbcglobal.net. I'd be glad to send you before and after pictures.

I used Aluminum mag wheel cleaner paste cost $6 for my pontoon boat tubes. Made them look chrome . Lots of polishing took me 2 six hour days per side to get final results I wanted. Make sure you use a high speed buffer. I went threw 5 new buffer pads for both tubes. The cost of pads are $26 a piece 3M pads.

I have mildew on the rubber rub rails on my pontoon boat that I can not get off. I have tried a lot of commercial mildew removers to no avail. Any ideas?
Diluted bleach removes mold.
To remove mold from your boat seats make your boat seat always dry. if you are in warm moisture environment then there is lots of chance to grew pink mold stain in boat seats or cushions.
Try magic erasers. Worked for me
How do you clean the inside of the pontoon? We have a big problem with spider droppings.
