    We had the shark hide treatment done by manufacturer.  We have cleaned the toons with soft brush and rag when anchored at the beach.  This was done a couple of times a month.  What should we use when we pull the boat out for the season? We are not sure what chemicals to use if any or just use pressure washer and mild soap.  Happy to be part of Club Bennington and appreciate all the knowledge you all bring to the table.  Thanks

    We were told to just use dawn dish saop and a pressure washer ours sat in the water for 2 weeks one time this summer coated in green the lake is a muddy bottom anyway they came real clean there were a couple of spots the factory missed my Bennington dealer said they would take care of that this winter.

    Redsky I power wash then use a strong acid based solvent and then powerwash again.  I will reapply sharkhide next spring.  There are many articles on this you can use the search engine and see much more advice others have posted.
