Re: Engine oil stains on deck gelgoat

I've used FSR on oil stains, works reasonably well. Give it a good soak time.
Gel is porous, hence the stain. No matter what you use it must be allowed the time to penetrate.

Do not wait until spring. The longer you wait, the further in the oil migrates, and the harder it will be to get it out by any means.

Re: Engine oil stains on deck gelgoat

So I tried many thing and I came up with almost perfect results (you can't tell where were the spot unless I tell you). First I used dish was soap, then on off and the FSR. But only when I used 3M rubbing compound the oil stains disappeared without damaging the gelcoat. I do not know if what worked was the combination of the products or just the rubbing compound, in any case it worked and I am happy about it. Thanks for your valuable advices.
