Might be a good idea if you:

A: Run a search on here

B: Tell us if you have any "trouble" areas, and we'll help.

There are a myriad of solutions and potions for each material/stain, so help us help you....

Lift up your elbow and with your other hand use a stiff brush in a back and forth motion just below your armpit. Take care as overdoing it can cause chaffing.
For a really deep clean, open your mouth and brush from the inside using a long handle.

Has anyone tried steam cleaning deposits off the hull after a time on the water or is that a no-no?

Got this new toy (domestic Karcher thing, not an industrial jobby) and was just wondering...
