Aaaaaaand,  she floats! No leaks yet! I've owned this boat for 10 years and this is the first time I've seen it on the lake.

Fleet feathercraft got a windsheild! Thanks to bruceter for the brackets! Piece by piece she's coming together. Probably going to order some grommets from a guy here soon. Need some steering parts and some vintage johnson control parts if anyone here has good connections!

Heavy duty EZOff oven cleaner is a little less extreme and more controllable.

I'm going to give that a shot soon, hopefully less 'patchy' thank you!

From experience with the process of removing the anodizing, I think the streaks are color leftover from that, more Draino or oven cleaner may be needed. It all will sand off but that is what it is, a lot of time, work and sand paper or SOS or Brillo pads, other wise it’s chemicals, acid or Draino or oven cleaner, no easy way out. :-(

I had a feeling I was in for some more draino.. its nasty stuff but works fast! I'm sure I'll show you all how it turns out. Thanks for the input

Please post some pics of the spots your trying to remove for a nonpolished boat I use sos soap pads just wet them a little a scrub in one direction front to back or back to front you don't have press down hard it will clean it up

I used draino years ago to remove the anodizing. Maybe that's what the streaks are from. The dark spots are from a plastic blue tarp though. Would just like it all one color, but not polished.
