    I was wondering if anybody had any tips for getting rid of a waterline stain. Mine is pretty bad being, that I spend a lot of time on the river, and I am wanting to clean up and sell my boat. It's a painted boat, so I didn't want to use anything that will eat the paint off. I've tried just soap and water with a scrub brush and it won't phase it. I've got some stains on the motor I'd like to get rid of too. Any ideas??

    I had the same problem, Gary. I found Scrubbing Bubbles to work real great. It also got rid of the black "soot" or whatever regular pollution causes on white painted surfaces.

    Castrol Super Clean works pretty well. It's strong enough that you might want to dilute it a little.

    YEP! What Tom said. Spray it on. Walk away, comeback and hit it with a brush if it was real funky and then hose it off. Hell. It works on the tub when I'm done. LOL!

    yeah what those guys said--plus preventive maint. spray it down when you get back water lines come off easy b4 they dry--just a washcloth and a hose--that way it dont build up.

    Get you some Slimy Grimy. They sell it at most boat dealerships. It costs about $20 for a tub that will last 1 or 2 washes. I use it once a year. Trust me, it is worth every penny as long as you read the directions. It will eat that stuff off like there is no tomorrow. One of the best products on the planet.

    for fiberglass boats they make some stuff called fsr, fiberglass stain remover, its incredible how well this stuff works, but looking back i think it might take the paint and all right off yours.
