Spotless Stainless Question

I bought some of this stuff and am planning on cleaning up my stainless tomorrow. I know some of you have used this with good results. I just wanted to find out if I have to be careful around the gelcoat since I'll be doing my stanchions as well. I'll be careful, but if it runs or drips, I want to make sure it doesn't melt fiberglass. I've looked for warnings on the bottle and found none and the company is closed right now so I can't call them, so any opinions are appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

Mike,
What did you think of the stuff? Did it work as advertised?

Great enough that it's a shame it isn't readily available over here.

I bought some for spring commissioning, but never got to it. It will now be a winterizing task, then probably be deferred to spring commissioning again.

Anyone know how it does on natural teak decking and awlgrip (actually Alexseal), when being rinsed off?
