    I don't know about you guys, but the inside of my skiff was getting pretty nasty from cat slime, cat blood, etc. Luckily it is not carpeted, has splatter paint throughout. I have tried several cleaners and had a couple of trips to the car wash, but no good, it still looked gnarlly.

    Tonight I sprayed it down with the generic brand chlorine bleach, lightly brushed it out and the hosed out completely. Man does it look great. All of the old slime is gone. I rinsed it for several minutes because I am afraid of what the bleach would do over time, but don't think it will hurt anything if you get it out pretty soon. I also made sure my sump was rinsed and dried out, it might damage pumps and hoses if left in there for long.

    Bottom line, $2 worth of bleach kept me from hours of scrubbing. Now, time to slime her up again!

    God Bless All,

    I don't know about using straight bleach,that could harm about anything it touches,blend it down with water to about 1 part bleach to 6 parts water and it would be alot safer. also need to watch where you drain that stuff to. Bleach is a great disinfectant,just remember it can hurt ya if you get any on your eyes etc,it'll allso break down any fabrics and cause then to fall apart.just a warning,this can and will damage your boat if applied without dilution. be safe
