Rusty Boat =(

I recently purchased an older boat (14ft cat) and after a few uses the frame began to rust all over the tubes. I plan to rub the rust off the frame and put a protective coat on it. My issue is how to clean all the rust off the tubes without causing more damage. Is there a cleaner I can use? There is a TON of rust and it doesn't seem to want to budge. Ideas?

Finishing Frame

Try POR15 on the frame. Best stuff I have found for home application. Read instructions carefully. Takes very little, one coat on whole frame with the 4 oz can
