I have a gas stain on side of boat coming from the fill hole down the side... I tried compound, that FSR stuff and it's not working. Anyone ever have this happen and know how to get it out?

Kerry,
I can't find your phone number anywhere! I thought I had it in the cell but I don't. Sorry! Darrell's contact said that it must have just damaged the wax on top and not the actual gelcoat. He said to try to buff it out with rubbing compound and wax it again. I hope this helps. Call me so that I can enter your number in the cell phone! Thanks - Chase

Crap, I just noticed that you already tried compound! I'll make sure we ask him again and tell him that it didn't work!

Well, I dont have a buffer, so I just did it by hand. Don't know if that makes a diffrernce or not.

Believe it or not.......Soft Scrub....I checked some other sites, and they all said it was safe on gelcoat, fiberglass, etc.
