White marks on black rub-rail

Looking for suggestions on how to take white marks off black rub-rail. I suspect they are from dock but having tried fingernail polish remover, paint remover, comet, goo gone, nothing seems to work. If I take my fingernail too it, I can't even scratch it off. Any ideas?

Acetone should work.

No... Acetone didn't work either.

#0000 steel wool should work. The marks might also be from the guide poles on the trailer.

I had these on my boat when I bought it. Lightly used a scraper to get them all off, but now some are back. Still haven't figured out whats causing them. Gotta be rubbing up against something, but I can't think of anything white that it has touched.
