Saw this on the top right side of the hull.
Used Mr Clean Magic Eraser pad and it came right off, few swipes gone!

Do Magic Eraser only work on white gelcoat? I have white boat w/ black hull. Have a couple deep scratches in black gelcoat that aren't fazed with Meguiars compound for heavy oxidation. Will test a small area next time out.

I only have a white hull boat, could not tell you how it works for black.
Try it out and let us know the results.

They will not take out scratches. Its a cleaning pad.......

Looks like I will be picking up one as well, though my boat is to old to have creature comforts like a glovebox.:rolleyes:

They are cheap, less than $2 and you get 2 in every box! They don't last very long tho..;)
(check Menards, they were cheaper than WallyWorld)

I'd highly recommend not using these on a boat period the reaction with heat will cause more problems in the long run than you want. Especially on seats speaking from experience on this one.

The chemical in the pad had some reaction to heat. Cleaned my boat up really good before I left for vacation last year put the cover on came back and my Upholstry was red. Then cleaned some scuff marks off the rub rail it turned it white so using it on the gel coat I'm sure it will peel something away from it as well. Ended up replacing all the Upholstry because of it
