I had placed my 08' CWB Transcend Platinum on the back star board locker, which boat was in garage out of sun. The board sat there for about a week and a half, when I went to remove the board the back decal left it's MARK. Not the best pictures, but now how do I get this off? I even have tried magic luck. Please any suggestions. Thanks!

The sun is your friend.....leave it exposed when sunny as much as possible.

Ok, I'll let it sit out in the sun tomorrow for a while. Anything I should do while out in the sun, cleaners or just let it sit?

I agree with Michael on this one but you will need a few days of sun to remove that fading. Also, talk with CWB and see what they have encountered, if they have encountered, something like this. $.02

i honestly didnt think it would get the red hair dye off. i heard the key is to let it saturate and soak, which is what i did

The sunshine treatment works the best. Had a brand new boat, white interior, that someone left a wet red towel on. I almost cried, and tried everything known to man to clean it, and nothing worked.

A few days in the sun later... totally gone!

Try the sun first it works. I just went through this on my boat, 4 hours in the sun it was gone.

Sun works, add some water to the vinyl it helps pull the color out of it. Done it many times, never fails gets the crap out everytime.

Well I only got about 2-3 hrs in the sun on Friday, which did not show much progress and due to all the rain here Saturday and now looking like the same tomorrow (Sunday) I will have to shoot for next week to get it back out of the garage to set in the sun. Thanks for the help, hope this works.

Sun and patience should do the trick.I had a girl sit on my boat with blue jeans and leave a stain that would not come out with anything, but by the end of summer the stain had removed itself

The stain is referred to as sublimation. When another item that may be printed, painted or surface dyed is placed on top of a vinyl surface under heat & mositure it can chemically transfer the dyes into the vinyl. The substrates do matter but best practice it to not leave anything on the vinyl.
This can happen easily on lower quality vinyls and actually nothing will remove it.

This is why Mooring Covers must use "Solution Dyed" fabrics which will not sublimate onto any surface. SurLast is a very common fabric that will not affect vinyl.
