Someone told my to use a magic eraser on the boat to take off the water spots. Id imagine that it would work really well, but its not good for the gelcoat is it?

Do a search for "magic eraser", there are tons of threads on that subject.

It is a mild abrasive.

I would not use it on the gelcoat. It's handy on any non gloss finish but don't use it too often.

Magic eraser + gelcoat = bad

I use Ducky. Get's all the water spots off. However, a friend uses windex with vinegar and swears by it. It's substantially cheaper than Ducky.

vinegar and water work really well, may try the windex and vinegar. I have a black hull. We used to use the magic eraser when I was a retail vendor to clean our tub surrounds. The gel coat does come off in small incriments. I think in the long term you will regret ever using that "evil sponge" on your boat.

I use all of the Babe's boat products, but the spot solver and boat bright are both amazing products in my opinion.

skeptical i used babes for the first time last weekend.
wow insanly good product.
you litterally spray on and whipe off with a rag. no pressure require its just vanished. and this was on 9 months of build up. one spray and swipe and it was gone. to good to be true.

**** works. i then followed it up with the spray on cleaner/wax (boat bright i think they call it) to prevent it from happening again. works AWESOME!

I would think that using Magic Eraser on your gel coat/paint would be akin to a very light wet sand. In theory if used in moderation with a good polish and wax proticol and you should have good results an be just fine. I personally have used them to get light scuff marks off my gel with no problem but never on water spots. With all the great products on the market for them I fail to see the need.

I would not use magic eraser on your entire hull, except for small problem areas, scuffs or dock rash. It it will pull them right out believe it or not, but using them on clear coat on a car is a definite no no....

Yep, Diggs showed me how to do it. Works great on white gel. Key is to not do it too long, b/c it will start to cause damage.
