Hi, I have a princecraft aluminum boat that I would like to deoxidize and polish the bottom to help it slide off the bunks better. I saw online purple metal polish and deoxidizer that claims to work well. Anyone ever use it? Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I've never had the need to use this but was talking to a friend about his aluminum pontoons and he referred me to this, check it out, I hope it helps your boat...my buddy did say, wear gloves. (probably long sleeves also) Good luck and Happy New Year

also an electric buffer/grinder with a couple pads for final polish makes life easier

I have heard about people using a product called Zing to clean aluminum pontoon flats. I personally know nothing about it, but perhaps others do. You would have to look it up to see if it is a good and safe product. Might be other products and polishing techniques and tools that would be a separate step from just this cleaning. I have seen it after it removed the dark tea like stains some of our rivers cause from the Tamerack tree roots that tint the river and stain our aluminum fishing boat and the aluminum pontoon boats. I might try my Flitz product in the spring on a small section of the aluminum fishing boat as I believe that is supposed to make it shine up with a buffing wheel. I may find it too pricey for a whole aluminum boat. The Flitz has worked nicely on taking the cloudiness out of some old sun faded gel coat that I am pleased with. I may even try some of my aluminum streak cleaner on my shelf mad for RVs. It worked on my old aluminum camper. Good luck in your hunt for the best solution for you.
