Cleaning the hull and deck after a long road trip

Post by Markhondru » Fri Jul 06, 2018 8:28 am

My newly restored 39 barrelback will be making a 14 road trip to MD this weekend. Before it goes in the water what do you recommend for cleaning the deck and sides of the boat to clean road grim and see her fully shine. Is car wash concentrate okay and vinegar and water to get rid of the water spots? Thank you, Mark

a small amount of mild dishwashing soap in a bucket of water works fine for me.
