    what works for cleaning black rubber marks off white hull?

    At a resort I used an old boat ramp to park my jet ski when not using it. One of the black rollers where old and seized up so it left black marks all over the bottom of my hull. I have tried gas, wax, carpet cleaner, bleach, orange cleaner and bug and tar remover. All with no luck! Does anyone know what will take this crap off????

    Thanks

    when all else fails, a deep cut rubbing compound. to make it easier a little buffer would help. need something that has some bite.

    Try using Clay bar and then buff it out with a rubbing compound. Should do the trick

    I owned a Boat Detail business and we used Acetone.
    It is the easiest to remove black marks from the hull and rub rail.
    ** BE CAREFUL ON THE GRAPHICS ** too much rubbing and it will take the print/color off

    Also, wax the areas of the hull that you used the Acetone on

    Glad to hear it came off. I agree with acetone as well, but like customcruiser said make sure you wax/buff the area that you used acetone on or else you will have fade spots on it. I have detailed cars for living so its pretty much the same concept.

    thanx
