Rust Stain

Hello:

I have some rust stains on the anti-skid of my boat. The stain looks as if someone had left metal shavings on deck and left them to rust over the gel coat.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of this stains.

T-N-T, C4, Dynamite or perhaps something less agressive.

A mild acid will work like a charm. Try CLR or dilute oxalic acid.

Marykate "On & Off" will also work.

Barkeepers Friend available at Publix or Walmart for under $2. It's mostly oxalic acid and works like a charm on rust anywhere.

Rick,

That is good to know! Cheaper and safer! Mary Kate can be overkill in some situations.
