    What is the best way to clean my non skid deck. I have a 2015 center console SS211

    Having a hard time getting it clean. Have tried all products, but won't come clean. Wonder if there is something wrong with the finish?

      I've had good luck with StarBrite non-skid deck cleaner.  This year the deck was really nasty, so I had to let it sit on the deck for a while after I worked it in with a brush, then I used a rotary brush in my buffer to get the really tough stains.  It took 2 goings over to get it clean, but looks good now.  

      You can use bleach as a last resort, which will basically lighten the stains, but doesn't really clean.  But bleach does make it look better for a while.  Just keep bleach off any metal, and any other surfaces.

      +1 on StarBrite.  When I stopped by a West Marine I bought their Pure Oceans non-skid deck cleaner and it worked OK, but I think the StarBrite product worked better.  I have soft and medium pole mount brushes and have used both on the surface with great results.

      I was having a little trouble getting a brand new non-skid floor clean with a 2015 Sundeck 2200 DC OB, even with some Clorox GreenWorks cleaner that works well elsewhere.  My wife picked up a package of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser pads and they worked wonders.  They also completely removed a nasty little scuff on the bow from a dock rub rail the first time out.

      Nice Boat!  I have a 2003 211 and love it.  The center console makes it feel like a true fishing / pleasure boat.  What I use to keep deck spotless is StarBrite non-skid deck cleaner but I mix 1/3 simple green and 1/3 bleach to 1/3 Starbrite.   Then I use woody wax right after rinsing.  Deck stays immaculate with a simple rinsing for up to 2 months.   We love how the blood, stains from fishing wash off easily when we use woody wax after the Starbrite cleaning.

      Just read up on that Woody Wax for non-skid surfaces (never heard of it before, waxing and non-skid didn't quite sound like they went together! :o ).  Very interesting product, thanks for sharing your experience with it!

      Directly after rinsing the Starbrite cleaner,  you spray on deck brush and squirt sparingly on deck.  I scrub everything inside with it.  Let it dry about an hour and take a towel and buff everything lightly.  One can will last me around 4 applications, so don't over spray. This stuff works GREAT,  I don't ever put my carpeting in because my deck is easy to clean.
