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?

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?

The owner or rep of SS is a member here, so I'm sure we will get an answer.
