Review: Boat Bling Hot Sauce Premium Hard Water Spot Remover
So we've tried a few products during our day, and without naming names—let's just say Boat Bling Hot Sauce works ... period.
Our first boat was a 20' bow-rider 1998 Bayliner Capri. It was your traditional Bayliner white and blue, so water spots were never something I really had to deal with—only because you didn't see them on a white hull.
Our current boat, 2018 Yamaha 212 Limited S—with a black hull, is another story. Our first season I scoured the internet high and low trying to find a cleaner that could keep the water spots off the black gelcoat.
To cut to the chase, my search stopped when I discovered Hot Sauce. Later this summer I'll post a video review of Hot Sauce in action—for now, take my word that this stuff is simply the best.
I will say in my personal experience—I find it best to have a good seasonal wax on the gelcoat to further prevent hard water spots from happening. Especially with a darker hull, you will see the water spots. But the wax does seem to offer a bit of protection—and I can say I have not tried Hot Sauce on my gelcoat without a coat of wax. Perhaps that's a great video series to do in the fall.
To remove the water spots with Boat Bling Hot Sauce—simply spray in a 3-4' section, and wipe off. It's that simple. I've tried methods where I'll spray the port or starboard side, come back and wipe the whole side down. However, I highly recommend working in smaller 3-4' sections at a time to simply reduce the amount of over wiping you would have to do otherwise. I've also experienced if you spray too much—you do have to wipe and wipe and wipe to ensure all of the Hot Sauce is resolved.
I have not had a single occurrence, no matter how many water spots have dried over a short or long period of time—where Hot Sauce didn't do what it's supposed to do. At the end of the day, especially with a darker gelcoat/hull—Hot Sauce is the real deal and I will use this for the rest of my life.
Currently, it comes in 32 oz. bottle and a 1-gallon option. Ya know, for the big boy projects.
