Proper care and maintenance greatly extends the life of your valuable boat. Whether it's coated with Pennel Orca or another hypalon-type rubber, urethane or PVC, it pays to remove dirt and other environmental contaminants, using Inflatable Boat Cleaner, before storing it. Then, following manufacturer's recommendations put on a coat of 303 Aerospace Protectant. It's "SPF 40 sunscreen for your stuff" and helps keep boat materials supple.

    Q:

    Is this the best product to clean/remove ammo can rust stains from the floor of my inflatable kayak.

      A:

      I've never used it for rust stains but it probably will work. Use a "scotchbrite" type cleaning pad to work the cleaner into the stain. Let the cleaner stay on the stain for 10 minutes or so, then scrub again. Should do the trick.

      A:

      The inflatable boat cleaner is the "secret sauce" I was looking for. My boats float a little higher and look a lot better after a good cleaning. I clean them every fall before I put them away. When the ice comes off in April and the fish get hungry again, my pontoons are clean and my boats look great...get some!

      A:

      This product is ok for general cleaning. It is on the mild side, however. I have had good luck with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser for the really tough stuff. These kinds of stains require some hard scrubbing, however. Test in an inconspicuous area to see the effect on the finish of the boat. Good luck.

    Will this cleaner take out mold/mildew, without damaging PVC dinghy?

      I can definite tell you that it won't damage PVC no matter what. I've had mixed results with it removing really deep stains but great results with surface stuff like Al rub marks and other dirt.

      It's a very effective cleaner, and it won't harm PVC.

      Yes it is very effective for pvc or hypalon. Spray on, brush with a medium
      brush, spray off.

    Q:

    I have a year old hypalon dinghy and just returned from a week sailing trip where we towed the dinghy behind. The diesel exhaust just made my relatively new dinghy into something that looks like like a camouflage coat. I have tried some generic cleaners with no success. will this product also remove the diesel exhaust residue?

      Mike, this should help to get that residue off your boat. May require some extra elbow grease.

      A:

      I can't help you with diesel exhaust, but it's done a great job at removing other hard to get off stains like Al rub marks. I'd say give it a try. If not, it's still a very solid cleaner.

      NRS,
      I have not used it against diesel, but everything else on my dinghy comes right off. My dinghy is 10 years old and after I clean it in November, it looks like new. I like this product so much I purchased a gallon of it. Practical Sailor tested it and also said it was the best. And my dinghy is also hypalon.
      Good luck.

      Yeah I think so... I was amazed at how much newer my 30 year old rafts
      looked after using this. Had gotten rid of paint stains that were over 20

    Q:

    Is this product applied directly to the boat, or is it diluted in water?

      A:

      I used a spray top and applied it directly from the bottle. The quart was
      enough to do all my Mercury 10'6'' (white Hypalon) with a third of the
      bottle left. I let it sit a minute or so, scrubbed with a soft brush, and
      rinsed with water as per the instructions.
      My boat was in pretty good shape, it didn't get all the stains out, but
      overall it did a very good job.

      In the shade and with the raft cool to the touch, I spray it directly to the boat, wipe it down with a soft cloth while the cleaner is still wet and then just hose off. I let it dry and then spray UV protectant on it.

      Hello NRS,
      This product is sprayed directly onto the boat. So, if you purchase the gallon size,
      you should get a spray bottle. The stuff is expensive, but it is amazing. I use
      it on an inflatable, hypalon dinghy. The boat is outside all summer and I use
      it to go to/from my sailboat on a mooring. When I put everything away for the
      winter, I clean my dinghy. This product makes it look almost new. I believe
      the spay bottle was good for 3-4 cleanings.
      Hope this helps.

      The instructions call for wetting the boat with water. Then spray the Cleaner on and let it set for a minute or two. Scrub with a cloth, brush or something like a Scotchbrite pad. Rinse with water, let it dry and for most surfaces, add a coat of 303 Protectant to prevent sun damage.

      Good Cleaner

      This cleaner is safe to use and works better than just soap and water. Some marks were just too stubborn for it to remove though.

      Algal scum

            My 12 ft Zodiac is moored in fresh water all summer long. In the Fall there is a thick growth of green algae plus a slimy brown scum on the side tubes. I spray cleaner on, wait five minutes, and scrub with a fairly stiff hand brush. 95% clean with the first pass and spotting gets everything else with a small second effort. 10 years and counting.

                Practical Sailor mag recommended this and so I got it. I own a Zodiac that I bought slightly used. It's floor had stains I couldn't remove with other cleaners. This cleaner however removed almost all of them making it look like new. I too would recommend this product now.
