303 is great, but it really does make boats slick. I use NRS boat cleaner too, still need to try the Mr. clean stuff too.

LA's Totally Awesome! It costs $1 at Family Dollar or Dollar General.
Non toxic or corrosive and a heck of a lot better than Simple Green and much less expensive than boat cleaner.

And I was wondering what Lance (Armstrong) was up to these days. Good to see he's keeping busy

I think Read N Run nails it here. Although the Magic Eraser hasn't panned out as well for me. Only because I couldn't get the result I was looking for. But it's a staple for lots of folks. Everything else mentioned above works great. I only do the 303 at the end of the season as mentioned. Most times just blasting it with a hose is fine in season. And ya, your going to get fish guts, blood, beer, coffee grounds, and who knows what else on it in season. One thing you might want to try is to have a few shots of Tito's vodka before you clean it. Once your done it will look great. Relax... The new boat Anxiety will go away. Take care of it. It will look great for a long time.

+1 - storing it clean is really my only goal - anything left over from the previous trip is just "lube" for the next one.
