ALGAE & WATERLINE STAIN REMOVER


From A Grateful Oklahoma Boater...

Captain,

I just wanted to say thanks and let you see the before and after pictures after using Boat Brite.
Feel free to use the photos. It took a bit of "Elbow Grease" on the heavier algae and we are
very pleased with the results by using your product. We will certainly be recommending
Boat Brite to our friends.

Thanks, Grateful Oklahoma Boater

From David...

Hey Captain John, pretty much took care of it... :)

AFTER

From Jack, FL...

I told you I would send you some feedback when I had a chance to use the Algae and Stain Remover, and now I risk sounding like some old hack when I tell you this stuff is fantastic. I’m a 57 year old, retired, lazy, picky guy, and I’ve come to expect my money’s worth from products. Yours exceeded my expectations by a long shot.

                              

The first picture is from the bottle I ordered from West Marine because they didn’t have one on the shelf. We sprayed a little on the starboard underside near the stern and waited maybe 30 seconds before we knew we had found the right stuff. I ordered a gallon because I knew that one bottle wouldn’t do our 26’ sailboat’s entire underside, and that’s when you and I talked on the phone. Finally today I got the time to pour the gallon in a pump-up sprayer and let it go to work. Holy sh-t! No rubbing, no gloves, no anything. At the car wash we sprayed it on, waited a minute or so, and rinsed it off - end of story. I don’t know what kind of stain we have, but I expect it is tannin from the Pithlachascotee River where we launch on the way to the Gulf for sailing and racing. We’ve tried a lot of stuff over the past two years, and now we aren’t looking any more or trying anything else. Thanks! Jack

From Ron...

Greetings, Your Algae and Waterline Stain Remover is the best product I have ever used for battling Chesapeake brown scum line on boat hulls. My whaler sees a lot of action on the Chesapeake (I am one of the owners of Baltimore Lighthouse and I'm on the water quite frequently) and after years of using almost every product on the market I can say with unequivocally that no other product so easily removes that stain as your product. Keep up the great work! Ron Baltimore Light


From Ash, Australia...

G'day guys, I bought a spray bottle of your Boat Brite over here in Australia, gotta be honest, didn't believe the "spray on, wipe off" bit. Just recently bought a new (Second hand) boat, the hull was REALLY yellowed and stained, so I thought I'd give that a shot (was going to acid wash it). Sprayed a little bit on a rag and wiped it on, and the hull came up like brand new. Couldn't believe how easy it was and how well it worked. Keep up the good work! Ash


From Coach Z, Head Coach, MAC Junior Rowing, CA...

Captain John, Hi! The Algae Remover works really well - like magic, almost! We're using it to clean algae off the hulls of our rowing shells and it's not only super effective, but less caustic than what we'd been using previously, a waterline cleaner we'd gotten at West Marine that had some sort of acid in it. Not sure exactly what it is, but we couldn't apply it without a respirator. Your product is much friendlier! Thanks! We'll be back for more! Coach Z


From Mark Hale...

I recently went to one of your stores in Troy, MI looking for a hull cleaner to remove the waterline and algae stains from my boat. I had a half bottle of "Roll Off" left over from last year and thought it was the cleaner I wanted. One of your sales reps at the store said "Roll Off is really good stuff" so I spent the $27 for a gallon. When I got home to try it, I was sorely disappointed. I let it soak, I scrubbed it, I used 3000PSI with a 25 degree tip in my pressure washer and still had horrible stains. Fortunately I never opened the gallon jug (returning it today). Luckily (after hours of scrubbing with Roll Off, Simple Green, and bleach water, I found a half bottle of Captain John's Boat Brite in a corner cabinet of my garage. It took off ALL of the stains without any scrubbing whatsoever! Spray it on and the stains just rinse away. Why don't you carry this in your stores? None of the stores in my area carry it. Captain John's Boat Brite is far superior to products your sales rep suggested. Not his fault, because you don't carry it in the store he has probably never used it! Please add Captain John's Boat Brite to your store inventory so that your customers can enjoy the same high quality experience as I have. Roll Off may have a place in the boat cleaning world, but it is NOT any good at removing water and algae stains. Boat Brite kicks its butt!!!! Best Regards, Mark Hale


MISCELLANEOUS


From Jon Phillips, Captain Cooper’s Marine & Detail, LLC, Shoreline, WA...

Just wanted to let you know that as the owner of Captain Cooper’s Marine and Detail in the Seattle area, having such an environmentally safe product as part of our defense against Mother Nature is great! Your spray and wipe formulas of, black streak, bird and spider, and algae and waterline stain removers are a part of our day by day operations. We are also in love with the leather and vinyl cleaner how it pulls out deep ground in dirt. Not to mention how the teak cleaner is used in every teak job to restore the wood back to its original golden tone. We have also used the super soap and were surprised how well it cleaned the nonskid and how much dirt it pulled out of the teak decks. We recommend any Boat Brite product to our customers and any professional or do it "yourselfer".


From Wendy & David JONES…

Just a note to say how impressed we are with your products! I must confess it's the first time my 'honey do' list has allowed me to spend any time on our boat this summer! As Bill and Penny may have told you, we planted our first 550 grape vines this summer and both our son and daughter visited from Australia! So you can tell we've been too busy for boat cleaning! Anyway we're thrilled with the spider poop remover and the vinyl cleaner, not to mention the gel coat cleaner! How can bio-friendly products be so good? Could you recommend a polish I can use to shine the gel coat which is now 20 years and kinda dull? Will ARMOURAL work? And do you have a Christmas Box Set to market yet? What a great idea for all the yachties/boaters!All the best hope to hear from you soon!


From Adele Duncan, Oswego NY…

I was told about Captain Johns Algae cleaner and I went right out and bought it. This is the best product Ive found yet. The green algae comes right off so the boat looks as good as new. The black streak also works great on the exhaust and grime. I would definitely recommend these products. I used it to make my 1998 252 Baja look bright again.  So bright I sold it and just ordered more products for my next boat. Thanks again.


TEAK CLEANER


From Al Parker…

Captain John, I was glad to get some of your Teak Cleaner at West Marine here in New Bern. The teak on our 1986 Compac 27 sloop had been neglected by us for about 3 yrs. Previously it had been oiled and in fair condition when we bought the boat about 7 yrs ago now, and we had washed and oiled it a few times, but never used a teak cleaner. It took 2 applications to get into the worst grooved places and to get all the hidden green growths gone, but it was a very easy job, with a small "vegetable brush". After it dried it looked very good. 2 months later it still looks great, and should last the coming season. Our boat stays in the water and gets used every month of the year. Sincerely, Al Parker


SUPER SOAP


From Chapper Gray, MY AB7…

We used the CapJohns Boat Brite boat soap on our recent big clean up after crossing from the Bahamas. I was amazed how much better it was than the other boat soaps we have tried. Our 105MY was really dirty and your soap cut the cleaning time by about a third. Thanks!


From Brian McCarty, Adirondack Detailing, 1000 Islands, NY…

Your products work very well on my new Sea Ray. I was first introduced to your Boat Brite Polish and now have added your Ultimate Cleaners to my dock box. I am very impressed that such a powerful cleaner doesn't harm the environment. I have and will continue to tell my boating friends to try your products. Thanks for making my boat cleaning a little more enjoyable.


From Erron, SolYacht Detailing…

I own a yacht detailing and management company and have been looking for better quality products to use and to recommend to my customers. We found it with Captain John's BoatBrite products. Here in SE Florida our boats are regularly covered in ash from sugar cane burns, Super Soap removes it without a problem. No other regular use product has worked so well!


From Sheri, Helena, Montana…

My husband and I love your Super Soap. It cleaned our non skid decks great.


VINYL & LEATHER CLEANER


From Howie and Carol Hemminger - Signature Yacht Sales…

Carol and I were bringing our 1969 Uniflite back to Seneca Lake for the winter. With Carol at the helm I decided to clean the boat one last time using your cleaners. I started with the liquid cleaners and it worked well in our salon especially on the headliner which had some mildew along the edges (Carol commented that it didn't have a chemical smell). On the bridge the upholstery cleaned better than I have ever seen and my helm seat arm rests get especially dirty and WOW all the dirt disappeared. I then used the gel and the paste and proceeded to clean the entire deck of this old 36 footer and honestly, both Carol and I agreed that the boat was cleaner than at any other time during the eleven years we've owned her. We'll have an arsenal of your products on board the next year and I'll be telling all my brokerage customers about them too.


From Stu The Tattoo…

I got the Soy Strip in the mail a few days ago, but haven't had time to try it yet. I'll definitely drop you a line when I get a chance to use it. I HAVE used your cleaners. Awesome. They'll save me the trouble of stripping my vinyl off my boat, they clean so well. Thanks.


From Dawn Draeger, St. Peter, MN. …

We purchased the Vinyl & Leather Cleaner (32oz) from a Sports/Camper Show in Minneapolis earlier this spring and just recently used it to clean our awning. We had such awesome results that we would like to purchase more for ourselves, and our neighbors in the campground would like us to purchase the product for them as well. Can we order direct from this website address, or do we have to find a dealer and order from them? Thank you for your help!


BLACK STREAK & EXHAUST STAIN CLEANER


From Mike Franklin, Principal, The Yacht Keeper, Inc., Jupiter, Florida…

I tried the Black Streak remover on a large raw diesel fuel stain on the transom of a boat today. The stain was in the gel coat. It could not be rubbed off. When the Black Streak was applied, the stain cascaded down off the transom and, with a quick rinse, it was completely gone. Took about 10 seconds. Great stuff.


SOY STRIPPER


From Dan Groth…

John, that soy strip is some great stuff!! I used it to strip away varnish and stain on my boat last spring and it worked better than anything I've ever tried. I just bought more to work on some indoor projects this winter. I also used it to strip away paint on an old farm tractor. I call it the "Lazy mans way to strip" No harmful fumes, and I don't worry about getting it on my hands. I start with a scraper after it bubbles up, then use one of those scrubby pads with water to finish…great product!


From Bob on the Chesapeake…

John, thought that I would report on the success of your products. First the fuel and stain remover worked great, just spray on and rinse off. The stain remover for the Chesapeake Bay on the water line worked just as well. I used it compared to Y-10, another product, and found that both removed about the same, but yours was easier to handle, just spray and rinse off. The varnish remover worked very well, and the directions are right on. Must leave it on for 4-5 hours, with some saran wrap to cover it. The one thing that I found helpful, especially on the non-skid surface, was a moderately firm wire brush. This allows you to get into the areas on non-skid easier, but does the job. Thanks for the products, and look forward to keeping in touch with you regarding the new wax for my Edgewater. Regards, Bob


MARINE/MOLD RELEASE WAX STRIPPER


From David Marlow…

I am quite happy with the wax remover. I hope you sell a zillion barrels and eliminate the Acetone-MEK-Toluene trail. Today I applied it to a fresh hull with a scrubby pad and tested adhesion of resin on three spots. One with simple washing, adhesion poor. One with wiping on only by soft rag, adhesion very good. One with product applied and very lightly scuffed with scrubby pad, adhesion outstanding! I will include an article in our next Newsletter (April) relative to your products and the goal to mitigate damage to the environment. Perhaps you might like to write the article for submission?


From David Krupp, Tonopah, Arizona…

My wife and I own a 1989 fish/ski boat in Tonopah, AZ. The boat suffered from extremely oxidized wax all over the hull of the boat, particularly the color areas. After trying every cleaner, wax remover, rubbing compound, and everything else I could think of to clean the boat I began to get extremely frustrated. My wife, sensing my frustration and unbeknownst to me, purchased some of you Marine/Mold Release Wax Remover. I witnessed a miracle. In about three hours we were able to remove all of the old wax from the boat. I could not believe how easily the old wax came off with a little soaking and a soft brush. I figured it would take me years to remove the old wax with a buffer and rubbing compound. It even removed the sticky from the old ID numbers. I don't remember the last time I was more impressed with a product. I will definitely recommend your product to anyone and everyone who has a boat.
