With so many cleaning products on
the market, the team at Shurhold asked us to give their “Serious Marine Cleaner”
a try. Removing nasty stains, scum marks at the waterline, grease, dirt, scuff marks
and other grime on a boat's various surfaces is an age-old chore, and one that can
take a lot of time and effort. Let's see how it worked.

Several months ago the company that makes Yacht Brite products (Shurhold) sent us

hull with “Pro Polish” the product we mentioned last week and forgot to take a “before
and after” picture of the cleaning. So we can’t show you a before and after picture
of the cleaning, but we do have a before the cleaning and after of the polishing.
So there you have it.

picture was taken after both the cleaning and the polishing.
