Ramp and clamp sucks, non marking my a$$. It's better than boat buddy, but that's it. Mine does the same thing. Acetone or goo gone, then re wax.

This is what I did. Works like a champ. Been holding strong for 3 years now.

Acetone will remove those marks. Finish up with a polish.

Keep it waxed and keep your bow waxed and even so be gentle during off load and load and it helps reduce them …

In any case you will end up with one or 2 . Nail polish remover / Acetone all take them off as has been mentioned.

But wax afterwards to replace the wax that the Acetone pulls up …. good as new!

dont spray the acetone or goop off directly on the boat. Put it on a rag and wipe...that stuff is harsh and at least limits the size of the spot u take wax (and even more) off. I used to 3M adhesive remover before ceramic coating...now dock rubs wipe off with just a rag mostly.
