We had to replace the chain that connects the wheel
to the rudder
. To do this we had to replace it with motorcycle chain and shorten it with a grinder. It left tiny shreds all over my deck
. I've cleaned it and cleaned it and cleaned it with a rust stain remover. Each time it gets better, but Im nearly out of the rust remover and where I'm at there are no real boat supplies to be had....
So Im looking for a "readily available" alternative. I looked at CLR, it says dont use on plastics. It makes no mention of fiberglass
or gel coat.... any ideas? is CLR too harsh or will damage the gel coat?
