I saw this on Craig's List and thought it was clever. Have you seen them? Do they work?

I bet they work great, nice hot bath and it kills all the junk growing on the traps and it falls off when the gear is set back in. They ought to have a boat sized one, dip the boat in on a travel lift let'er soak for a bit, back in the slip and all the grass and barnackles fall off. I do my boat with clorox when its on the trailer, just spray on with a garden sprayer, let it soak a bit, set'er back in go for a short ride and bottom is clean.

Good tip on bottom cleaning- just not over grass. LOL

hey if it doesn't clean the traps we can just use it as a Maine's red neck hot tub. After pulling my traps I can jump in might even clean the growth off me . Do they make a double. Cause if they do I will have to trade my sternman in for one of those "mermaids of day" nice ...

The Clorox works great on grass, i just let the boat sit on the trailer for awhile so the grass 'drains" most of the water out of it that way the water doesn't dilute the clorox when i spray it on. I spray on the Clorox and let it work, if the grass is real heavy i get my deck brush and pick up some dirt or sand with it and just give the grass a little rub and it comes right off.
