I suspect with it being a dilute acid it'd get rid of barnacle rings quite well.

I think you mean Muraic - which as Nos says is Hydrochloric Acid.
But as Nos suggests cillit bang (the grime and lime one not the cleaning crystals) would be better it contain phosphoric and sulfamic acids which whilst not something you would want to get in your eyes are generally a bit safer to handle than hydrochloric acid.

Nearly right. I have 8 gallons in my truck. "Hydrochloric acid solution" Also know as Muriatic acid. It is used for correcting Ph and acid washing pool plaster surfaces when combined with a thickening agent that stops it all running to the bottom.

8 Gallons you must seriously love the stuff.

Car crash may prove a bit of a problem for the police;

"what's that, two gungy, flat, car sized pizza's have crashed" well shoot them anyway Johnson!

I tried this out today on a hull heavily encrusted with barnacles and it works very well. You can just spray it on and scrape off but I found the best method was to scrape off the worst of the cr*p, then spray it on and leave it for a minute. Then just wipe away with a wet sponge or very lightly with a dish scourer and then sponge it.

I've used a pressure washer on the hull - works actually quite well with no damage to the hull. I've been told to keep it away from the tube as the pressure could easily peel back the patches holding the tube to the hull or worse one of the seams...

Yes did today and it worked very well, back clean, bottom was fine, just the sides needed a blast and the hull came back very clean. Pressure washed the sides then just used a car brush to wash over the area underwater. You do get a tad wet doing it though Plus it helps to get your mate (Paul and Dad) to stand on the side tipping the rib a little.
