Guys I would love some input on yalls tactics on cleaning baked squid and guts off of your boat. What type of detergent, solvents, brush, rag.

Waxing is definitely the key, we always had Ivory at daybreak back several years back worked well, stiff brush a must. Tried to avoid bleach but clorox cleanup worked wonders for us (me) fishing a 31 proline non skid. Bring young people to do cleaning that was my Job, I always saved energy for it and was insulted if the Capt. had to lift a finger at the end of the trip for taking me out on such a fine boat. If ya put it off for 1 day it'll be 10X worst get right on it.. it bakes in

Clean as you go is the best solution. Which is harder on boats without raw water washdowns. But keep that five gallon bucket handy and it should be a easy cleanup after you get her back to dock.

+1 Taking 2 minutes to wipe/hose of some blood after each spot or fish will save you 2 hours at the dock.

If you let it bake on there, then get a stiff bristle brush and put some elbow grease on it.

Don't let it dry, bucket raw water dip your brush over the side, whatever to keep it from drying. Dawn is bad on plastic a rubber, used for a while and it wound up costing me some gaskets and the antenna on my EPRIB.

Wash as you go, but someone should break out a stiff brush and hit everything on the ride back in. I usually do this while my buddy drives us home.

Mr. Clean Majic Eraser with soft scrub. Works wonders. Removes dried on fish, blood, scuff marks with ease and want damage gel coat. Been using them for 5 yrs on my boat. You can find them on the cleaning supply isle in grocery store. Made my job of cleaning boat after every fishing trip a whole lot easier since I don't know how to clean fish and I get stuck with that chore.
