    Default degreaser

    Whats a good degreeser that will get engine oil and gear oil off the bottom of the boat and pump but at the same time be safe for powdercoat and micro clear coatings?

    Shaun, I believe Impatient 1 means dish soap. "DISHWASHER" soap sucks. Dawn seems to work the best for me. But then, I am a hi-roller and don't go for that generic crap

    Well in that case, it is still "dishwasher" soap. Just for the type that stands in front of the counter instead of under it.

    Default Friendly/green

    "Simple Green" seems to claim their stuff is friendly to the environment.....I know the drive thru dairy type convenience stores have hot water outside. Tape over the "J drains", add 1/2 bottle of dish soap/hot water, and drive it down the road a couple of hundred miles.. Stop on a hill, remove the tape, repeat as necessary. Worked great from Morgan City to somewhere in Texas. Clean as a whistle.......I don't think bilge pumping soap in the lake is a good idea if it can be avoided..........That is NOT the way you clean fish!!!!

    Default My secret weapon

    My secret weapon for degreasing is starting fluid. I buy cans of it at the local dollar store. I'm pretty sure it won't hurt powder coating but I can't speak with intelligence about micro clear coatings.

    Hand dishwashing detergent, hands-down, best (and Palmolive will soften your hands, while you clean your bilge (Madge said so).

    A note of scepticism I see. Spray, wipe with a paper towel, squeaky clean. It flashes off very quickly, It's not going to explode. You don't do it with the motor running.

    Tide laundry soap, warm water, with about 50% diesel fuel, with a scrub brush. This cuts grease and oil, and leaves minimal reside.
