Remove Rubber marks on hull?

Occationally when I sail into my slip I miscalculate and bump the rubber bumbers on the slip with my hull. This leaves an unsightly rubber streak on my PAINTED hull.
Any ideas or recomendations on how to remove the marks without damaging the underlying painted surface.

Try Grease Lightning (all purpose cleaner) with a soft scrubbing pad. This stuff also works great on rust stains.

Any cleaner you use will take the wax (and maybe the top surface of the paint) off the hull. The best cleaner you can use IS wax without carnuba. Add elbow grease as required.

And do a better job getting your vessel into the slip or use more fenders!
