That's some travel lift! I guess they move boats around the marina with a trailer? That boat is still a beast!

They haul boats up to 60 foot with that thing and then they move them with a trailer and tractor.... its a old lift but it gets the job done ......and its electric..

I bet one of the main ingredients is oxalic acid you can buy it in powered form at most paint stores they sell it as wood bleach, just mix up what you need in a bucket put it on with a sponge mop and watch that yellow scum go away. I used to do the St Pat with it all the time.

I haven't had any bad reactions yet on the plastic portions of the boat, wasn't too impressed with what it did to the bronze deck plates, but then again I just sprayed it and left it, should have swabbed it around an washed it off. Just left an annoying pattern.

Don't use it on concrete, eats the lime out of it.
