I've been told that Dawn Dish soap works good. I've tried it on the life raft canister on the boat and it seems to work ok, not magic though.

Yeah when I delivered yachts we sluiced a ton of Dawn all over the stern to keep things easily cleaned

grease lightning or anything with bleach

waxing the stern will help

the rubber exhaust flap makes it worse...trade offs

Dawn makes the boat dull but does work

once you get it clean enough put three or four coats of wax on it.

Then use meguiars 50 to maintain

colinite hull cleaner will take that off no problem. it requires some elbow grease though. goes on and off like wax. after that 3 or 4 coats of wax on the transom. colinite fleetwax in the container is the best wax for season long protection. then you're going to have to clean after every trip or get a different motor

I used this Fireplace Glass Cleaner on pretty much everything with soot and it worked pretty well. I had a Volvo TAMD41A so that makes me kind of an authority on soot.. :rolleyes: You can get it on Amazon or Lowes..
