removing black marks

I''ve used acetone a number of times on my boat to remove marks. Can''t see that it hurts the gelcoat at all and it is quite effective in removing those stuborn stains!

I always wash the area with soap and water after using the acetone just for my peace of mind, but acetone seems to be the generally accepted way to clean up stuborn marks.

Good luck
