I have been boaing in and around New Bern NC, for about two years. There are brown stains developing on my hull and swim platform. Any advice on how to take them off and prevent them in the future?

Collonite Fiberglass Cleaner and either use the Collonite fleet wax or I like the Rejex wax personally for ease of use. If you have a lot of the brown stains(tanin in the water) you might want to use some sort of buffer with the fiberglass cleaner. I think the Rejex wax keeps it from sticking as easy but you just have to keep a good coat of wax on the boat.

Sno Bol is the way to go at $1.29. Wet your boat and trailer spray it just on the yellowed area and wait a few minutes. Go over the spayed areas with a soft brush then simply rinse off. Be sure to not get it in your eyes or your skin (spray from up wind). Do not get it on any plexiglass.
