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 !!

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

Lime away works great just make sure you rinse it off well...

then rewax...

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

Sounds like oxidation.
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.
There are different products you can buy with varying abrasiveness.
He liked the Dolphinite products, but there are others.
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:
