Anyone know a good, easy way to get egg off the side of a Whaler? This happened last night and I can't get to it till this afternoon.

The best thing I have found is the spray type Laundry pre-soak products. Most contain an enzyme that breaks down organic proteins like blood, egg, feces, etc. spray it on, let is soak a good 20-30 minutes, then scrub with hot water. You may need to use a plastic scraper and re-apply the pre-soak if the egg is good and dried up. This also works well for fish gurry on non-skid floors. But beware, it leaves a very slippery surface until it is rinsed off.

It's fiberglass, not car paint. Anything that won't scratch the gelcoat will remove egg. Hell I know EZ-Off will do it but probably overkill.

Id be very happy it was only eggs. These LimpBizcuits have nothing better to do than destroy valuable property. I had my factory Boston Whaler cover taken. If I catch the jerks, I will press their face into the tiny end of my coordless drill. Soap and water should work fine.

Never scared

If you take some wet paper towels and lay them over the dried egg, it should re-hydrate them, then, it will come off with a hose. If it is on the die, maybe use an old bath towel and secure with a rope around the hull.

I meant if it is on the side, not on the die.
