    I would think purple power and a magic eraser would work

    On and off is the name of the product, most marine stores sell it.

    An Aluminum boat should fix it

    You tried simple green? I’ve found that it does a pretty good job of loosening that type of crap.

    Ive had good luck cleaning oil with a product called "super Clean" comes in a purple jug, made by Castrol I think.. Usually Auto-Zone has it. Awesome at getting oil out of concrete.

    Not sure on how it plays with gelcoat.


    Might be easier to just sell the Parker as is, and get that Alloy boat you've been dreaming about

    I use Star Brite instant hull cleaner gel formula for stains on my boat. The water our boat is stored in stains hulls pretty quick and bad. The star brite brings it right off. I also had some oil on my hull from a leak in Edmonds marina, came right off with this stuff.

    Directions are to spray it on the hull but I just spray some on a sponge and clean the area that's dirty. Keeps it from getting places it shouldn't.

    What was the fix?

    Mine took a new Precision 9 Compass in place of my Simrad RC-42 Compass. Not to tune it so it's not acting like a AIM9 MISSILE. Doing constant Zigzags. Playing with the Response times. Got better. But not rock solid straight.

    Old school advice is use gas. It will do the job very well and very inexpensive compared to the other options.

    Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil. I'm not sure on boat hulls but it works great on feet.

    Strangely I've had good luck with dish soap. You have to mess with the concentration a little to get it right based on the composition of your tar. Worked down in So Cal for the wife's family when they had tar blobs smear the boat.

    I used water-less hand cleaner and a rag to clean my hull after encountering an oil slick.
