I recently sold my Carbon Marine
CastingPillar. I've been very happy with the product but will not use it on my Native Skiff.
So after putting it up for sale I got a contact from a gentleman on the Maverick
site who wanted to barter for a custom built fly rod. His company, Blue Ridge Rods
builds custom made one off fly rods.
I went to ship the platform yesterday but wanted to clean the Seadek
as it had some stains and ground in foot dirt from a few years of use. I've tried several products over the years and while some got the Seadek
sort of clean none got it completely clean.
I called Bob from Shallow Water Customs
to ask his opinion. He said to swing by and try his deck cleaner that they use on every customers boat, Seachoice Non Skid Deck Cleaner with PTEF
, Starbrite carries a similar product.
This stuff was awesome! Simply wet the surface with water then hit it with a few sprays of the non skid deck cleaner, scrub with a good brush to form a healthy foam. Then let it sit for a minute or so. Last rinse off. It took all but three small dot sizes stains off the Seadek. I was so impressed I bought two, one gallon, jugs!
Bob said this is the only cleaner they use for customer boats with or without Seadek. I can see why!
I am going to do a little before/after set up with a dirty poling platform on the Waterman soon. I'll post the pictures here.
