If your boat is large enough, a dip pot is much better then a pressure washer.

I would recommend, which ever brand, choose one with a Honda engine.  Be careful that it is a real "Honda" not a knockoff that you will not be able to get parts for it.... For on a boat I wold think a skid mounted washer would be better than one with wheels.  Cool

17'skiff,  i usually just change out 10 at a time and clean them up at the house. the car wash is getting old quick. getting the washer on and off the boat is to much work,,,, real work boat cant get in my creek and walking out the house to the boat is the only thing im never going to give up. i rented a slip couple years back and the deep water was nice not having to be concerned with tide height, but the constant shuffle of stuff and when something was forgot or missing, oh well,,, the pressure washer is just a matter of not getting something i regret later, the ones at homer and lowes are decent prices, but reading online i see people say get a cat pump or honda motor or belt drive or something,,,,at 60yrs old i just want something to carry thru to assisted living

A Cat pump is going to add about a grand to a pressure washer...

More important than the pressure washer is the nozzle you need to have on it. 

Guy's I know have the dewalt's w/ cat pumps.  I have one too, they are pretty good.

If you want a cheap one that will last you buy a Troy Built 2800 Briggs and Stratton from Lowes

You want 3500+ PSI and also a higher flow rate, like 4 GPM or more. The flow rate is just as important as the psi. Honda motor and a turbo nozzle are a must.

Depends on how many pots you are washing.  I had to wash over 600 pots 3 times a year.

 But D3 is right.  You need at least a 3500 PSI with a flow rate of 4 gallons a minute.  I recommend a turbo tip.  It will knock off anything and everything.  Makes the pain in the butt job a whole lot easier and faster.

Brand doesn't make a whole lot of difference but Jack is right.  A Honda engine is a must.  After sitting up for 3 months 1 pull and it starts.

Get that turbo tip.  Its expensive but well worth it.
