    Best way to clean Fresh Water Outdrives (Hard Water)

    Does anyone know of a product or way to more efficiently clean the hard water scale from the outdrives that accumulates above the waterline while underway. I clean every week to make look like new, but I currently use Vinegar and I'm tired of the scrubbing involved. (Ducky and The Works don't work too well).

    Please let me know of any ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    A drive shower would eliminate it. BIII run hot and the deposits you are seeing are what is left as the water is steaming off the upper part of your drive that is out of the water while on plane but still getting splashed..

    My dealer had a cleaner I bought their that was specific for hard water stains on drives. It worked well. Easy way to get rid of another $20. It was an acid type cleaner.

    CLR, toilet bowl cleaner, and a gel based citric acid scale remover used for pools.
