I was thinking it may be some sort of bug crap or something.

I tried everything I could think of to get these stains removed but could only fade them a little. At least I don't have more of them since the seats are treated with 3M / 303 every 2-3 weeks.
I think I remember pink seats being a problem more frequent with the white interiors of 1999-2000-2001.
Please correct me if I am wrong on this.

How small is very small? Pencil lead size or eraser?

Just be happy!

Nector from the Big Orange Volunteers. Removing anything orange in TN is probably a felony

How 'bout a pressure washer.

I'm half kidding. But there's not much a high end pressure wash won't remove. Of course, you want to avoid removing the vinyl itself. That'd be my concern.

I hear that starbrite vinyl cleaner can work wonders.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

If the spots are pencil lead size they are probably spider poop. There is an enzime in the poop that stains the vinyl.
From personal experience I am sorry to have to tell you that nothing will get it out. I have tried everything to get it out of mine.

Be thankful that you only have 2 spots. Every piece of vinyl in my boat has at least 2 spots ...some have 10.

I would try Vinyl Finish vinyl cleaner, however some of the other products you tried might be equivalent. My 2005 owners manual says for ink, permanent marker, eyeshadow, etc to use straight denatured alcohol/rinse/wipe dry. This was to be used for the most stubborn stuff and seemed to be the "last resort".

There is also a formula they give of 1 tablespoon ammonia, 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide, 3/4 cup water mixed together...apply, rinse with water and dry; this was for the less stubborn stuff like wet leaf stain, mustard, etc.

Hopefully these might help. I've found too that if I really try hard to get a stain out, then leave the boat out in the sun for a couple days, the spot "fades" and disappears...may not in your case but good luck.
