The boat has been in the water a few months and I need to pull it out this week for some TLC. Any advice on removing barnacles from trim tabs etc..?

Let it sit out for a few days, barnacles should dry off the use a power washer and a scraper. They come off easier after they have dried out.

White vinegar and a little dish soap in a spray bottle. Soak 2-3 times a day for a couple days and then hit with the pressure washer. They'll come right off.
