Can anyone recommend a heavy duty application that will get these scuffs off of my boat?! They got there from me putting the boat on the trailer a little crooked in some very strong current. I need something that's stronger than Goof Off but won't hurt the fiberglass. It's kinda like a layer of rubber on there. I know it comes off because I've peeled some of it off. I just can't get the rest of it off.





This is just one picture of the bottom of the hull. I have some on the "splash" just above the bottom of the hull as well, but I can't get that picture to load for some reason.

Thanks for any help.

We use lacquer thinner at work to wash off some ruben marks. Used carefully, it doesn't hurt paint so it should not hurt fiberglass

Try paste wax first. If not, you could try polishing compound, that should have enough grit without damaging the fiberglass. Paste wax after.

I use polishing compound for fiberglass to get dock marks off. Then wax.

I would've thought that Goof Off would've gotten them off before polishing compound. Am I wrong about that? I've also read that acetone will work as long as you don't leave it on there too long. What do you guys think about acetone, then cleaning it, then polishing it? I've also read that a Magic Eraser will work as long as you don't over-use it.

Acetone will take it off.

I have been detailing my boat with acetone for years

Thanks for all of the replies, guys. It looks like I'm gonna use acetone and magic erasers.

Just the magic eraser by itself should work, just wet it down first, then you might want to re-wax.

Acetone like Redranger mentioned will make easy work of it. You'll be amazed how effortless it is. Dab a bit on your finger wrapped in a wrag and the marks are gone!

I promise you, every glass shop on the planet has Acetone in their detail shop

I thought I read on here that magic erasers are not good for your finish. I haven't tried them. Just passing along what I "think" I remember.

I think as long as you don't over-do it, it's ok. To be honest, I've been using the magic eraser for about an hour now with good results. But I need acetone to get the thick stuff off
