Our hull is Flag Blue awlgrip-and looks pretty good for being 12 years old. I was guilty of getting a bit too close to the rubber along the slip in Inner Harbor East in Baltimore. When we returned to Annapolis my Captain tried cleaning it with Roll Off. We then had a large light blue haze spot. I left it alone for about two weeks and then used a soft wax on it. Amazing how the haze came off and it's back to looking "Not too bad for a 12 year old paint job" So I have to agree with Cam... patience!

You can thin acetone with water for a weaker solution.

using buffing coumpound would be my best suggestion, something very coarse, acetone is good but be carefull, try rubbing a spot by hand with a liberal amount of compound, you can use a high speed buffer but this also can burn through if you paint is to thin or you get it to hot.
