    I recently purchased a ‘04 20’ G3jon boat an want to know if there is a secret on cleaning out the debris that is built up in and under the hull.... to allow better drainage.. basically the water sits in all the hard place to reach and doesn’t drain around or through the canals that have clogged up with mud.

    Try a pressure washer in those areas to break it loose. If a garden hose will fit that might work.

    Narrow tip on a shop vac might help.

    I want to try the shop vac. Do local boat shops have special cleaning tools?

    You might cover it when not in use, it’s a good idea to keep the sun off of it too.
    Raise the trailer tongue high, so drainage is insured.

    I like water to clean out mud.

    Tip jer up and set a ladder or scaffold on the side and let the water run hard.

    You might try a plumber's snake.

    first apply strong 1:1 solution of water and Simple Green, then invest in good hose attachment with needle nose, and a needle nose shop vac attachment (the only way to fill inflatables IMO) and some tubing to fit over both of those. If that don't work try electrician's "fish tape".
