My Boat sat at A Marina in the water for about 10 days and really fouled up the cavitation plate. I hit it immediately with the pressure washer and alot of Mothers polish cleaned it up pretty good but still shows the aftermath of being in the water for so long.. Main problem is its pitted pretty bad. How would you go about cleaning this up?

Assuming if they pitted they are aluminum? to make them perfect I would remove them to clean up and hell if you go that for replace them with stainless :) seriously without seeing them I would you are going to at least remove all the turnbuckles and plate bosses, start sanding maybee with 600 up to however far you want to go but I would go to at least 1200 and then buff them. I don't have a picture of plates but this bellhousing was pretty ruff and I sanded the heck out of it to get the final finish
