Best way to clean scuffs from floating dock on your hull?

So we arrived at our destination where the marina has floating docks and I forgot to put our fenders out before docking. So we have these nasty rubber marks on the hull. What's the best product and way to clean off the scuff marks?

Not that I've ever scuffed my boat when docking , but I always keep some Starbrite Cleaner Wax on the boat. It is a quick and easy way to take care of the occasional scuff.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser but with one BIG caution. Use a tiny edge so you are only working on the scratch itself and not the surrounding non-scuffed hull. If you get over eager, it will remove paint from a painted hull. If you are careful though, it'll remove the black scuff and then you can wash and wax as normal.
