live on a lagoon that has brackish water cedar water. every year i fight with the brown scum stain just above the paint line of about 6'' pain in the butt to keep it clean every weekend i have to scrub it off. i use rejeX on the hull. anybody have a a better wax or synthetic wax that works a little better. other then that the rejeX is really good stuff.

i do on/off takes it right off this happens with in the first week the boat is launched. all the boats in the lagoon get it but i get it more from all the traffic passing and the wakes run along the side and drive that nasty line up. just thought maybe another wax was formulated for this that i don't know about. elbow grease while in the water takes it off. after so many times you start removing your wax.

I mix up a spray bottle of oxalic acid and spray the offensive area periodically during the season, scum line disappears within minutes. No scrubbing and just rinse with a hose.
does it take away the wax also?

Oxalic acid is wood bleach at the paint store. Just be sure it is pure oxalic and not some mixed concoction. Mix a small amount in spray bottle an direct spray at water line stain. It will remove wax after some time.
FSR is EXPENSIVE oxalic.

blue jelly is nothing more than oxallic acid.

I have the same issue as I'm on a lagoon in northern Barnegat Bay. The past few years, I've put 3-4 coats of rejex above the waterline. The trick is you have to give it a week or two b/t coats to let it set up, otherwise you're just moving it around.

By the end of the season (Dec), I have stains, but nowhere's near as bad as a single coat, and if you hit it quickly with a brush once a week you're looking good at least thru half time.

If you stumble onto the majic bullet, let us all know!

This is nuts.... Stop at any hardware store and pick up a bottle toilet bowl cleaner called "The Works" or "Sno-Bowl". Cut the stuff 50% and wipe it on with a sponge. It works instantly. Just make sure you flush it well with freshwater. It's hydrocloric acid..

It will remove the scum line stains and rust stains instantly. Just don't use it where it can get down into seams where you can't flush/wash it away easily and throughly..

I'me been using it for 30 yrs..

Muratic acid is for cleaning concrete. It has no use on boats..
