The balsa floor on my boat appears to be for the most part original. ('76 biesemeyer flat) While I've got the motor out, I'd like to clean it up. Forgive my ignorance...just starting to learn fiberglass. I've got some grime in some areas, especially the sides and rear that dish soap and elbow grease just doesn't seem to dent. Any cleaning agents I should AVOID using? (brake clean, acetone, etc..)

To get a good shine/wet look, what's the best way to go about that? New clearcoat? Gel?

Is the black in the middle and on the stringers epoxy or ???

Thanks guys.
Mike

Acetone won't kill it, carb or brake cleaner will do the trick. New clear will do the job. You can get it from Marvin, he's on your side of town. Oh sticky stuff sales. The black would more than likely be gel. Hey the guy next to Marvin has the molds to that boat.
