does anyone have a trick to getting rid of water spots that have been on for awhile. I have tried Duck's Back, elbow grease and some blue gel supposedly designed just for water spots on gel coat, with no luck. I have heard white vinegar but what parts mixed. help !!

Vinegar and bottled water 50/50 mixed in a spray bottle, use after the boat goes on the trailer every time---whats a water spot?

I mix a little Lime Away with water and it does the trick everytime. You don't have to worry about that vinegar smell! <BR>

Lime away works great just make sure you rinse it off well... <BR> <BR>then rewax...

also, sno-bol works better than lime away, and is cheaper.

Sounds like oxidation. <BR>I was at a Marine store yesterday (Boats US/West Marine) talking to a guy about a pre-wax cleaning for the gel coat. I had a slight discoloration/oxidation happening. <BR>There are different products you can buy with varying abrasiveness. <BR>He liked the Dolphinite products, but there are others. <BR>I bought Dolphinite Wax Cleaner for medium oxidation with a medium abrasiveness. It worked well for what I had. If you've got a real chalky oxidation you're gonna need something with a little more abrasiveness. Here's a link: <BR><a href="http://www.boatus-store.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SiteSearch?navbar=Y&amp;keyword=&amp;searchDeptId= 4&amp;searchManf=DOLPHINITE&amp;image1.x=14&amp;im age1.y=15" target="_blank">http://www.boatus-store.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SiteSearch?navbar=Y&amp;keyword=&amp;searchDeptId= 4&amp;searchManf=DOLPHINITE&amp;image1.x=14&amp;im age1.y=15</a>

Meguires makes an awesome hard water spot remover, it is just called hard water spot remover, I had some spots I couldnt get off from last year and that stuff took em right off.
