Re: Removing Rub Rail Marks from Topsides
If the white marks are from vinyl rub rails on boats beside you, use MEK - Methyl Ethyl Ketone. It works great, the best of anything I've found, for cleaning up those rub rails and anything else vinyl - cowl vents, fenders etc. - should do the reverse quite nicely. Dampen a cloth with it and rub - it evaporates extremely quickly - like alcohol - so you'll have to keep wetting the cloth.
Were you docking somewhere downtown? A cousin had a berth along there for his Cat 42 but after a few adventures like you describe he moved to Alameda.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
