Good Morning, good voting morning.
Wondered if some has had this same problem.
a five gallon jerry jug on the stern, leaked for a week before i caught it.
here in the florida sun , it leaked all thru the rail scuppers and stained
about 6 feet of white glossy hull. hull an deck cleaner, oxcilic acid, west marine hull cleaner - just took off maybe 40% of it. the next step of sanding to gel coat an reglossing is not appealing at all. any other chemical out there that might work?
thanks!

I found the on off gel at west marine.
I already had a qt. of on off cleaner onboard and used it straight out of bottle an got about 40% off. On a white glossy hull , 60% looks terrible. I need somethiing that takes some of that gloss off to!

I use the red dye fuel but the stain appears brownish tan an it must be somehow imbedded in the gloss. is there a way to take off the gloss finish.
i used Poli-glow about a year ago. good stuff but tommorow i'm calling the manufacturer to see what can remove it.
