These guys all have it right, NRS boat cleaner, magic erasers, and elbow grease.
Magic Earsers are just melamine foam which you can get online for cheap without the name brand.
In addition I also use old electric palm Sanders or DA's but instead of sandpaper we use a rag held on with a rubber band. Works great. An electric orbital polisher would also work.

I've gotten a high quality clear shrink-wrap from Grainger. Works great! never leaves marks except for fittings. Fittings go over a shrink-wrapped tube also.
You can also paint your frame and put shrink-wrap over it.

You should definitely remove aluminum oxide. It will ruin the boat so when you sell it you might have to sell it for less than you paid for it.

I just lightly scrub boat with an SOS pad after each run. Its quick & easy. Takes the black alum marks right off.
