My 02 Getaway was showing its years with accumulated grime. Over the years I have made half hearted cleaning attempts with assorted marine, green and car cleaning products with very limited results. This year I tried Marine Spray Nine (www.spraynine.com) with impressive results. I was asked by a boat owner that stores his boat near mine if I had a new boat. When I said no. He said but you had that old boat for years. I assume that indicated that my cleaning standards had been questionable for years and that the Spray Nine had done a pretty remarkable job. Interestingly while it cleaned the hulls almost completely with one spray on and wipe off application, it did nothing even after repeated applications on the rudders. The rudders now look so bad by comparison that I will have to make an effort to find an effective cleaner for the rudders.

Will a high performance carbon fiber rudder for one of the bigger Hobies work for a Getaway? I would rather upgrade than scrub.

On an '02... pre-Ez Loc system using the aluminum castings? Yes, you can mount the Carbon blades.

Before replacing your blades, I would try cleaning them with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Not sure if it scratches or not, but it sure takes stains off of almost everything.

When i bought my wave the rudders were in sad shape. I used a scotch brite pad and spraynine they turned out really well. Not sure if your rudders are made from the same material but worth a shot.
