Default Care and feeding of painted hull

Ahoy, all

Did a search and all that turned up were threads on painting the hull. My new-to-me boat is painted a dark green from the chine to the rub rail and it's getting chalky. What do I clean it with? I almost started compounding or using nasty chemicals, but vaguely remembered reading somewhere that you can't treat painted hulls exactly like plain gel-coated ones.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Default Re: Care and feeding of painted hull

it is very important that you find out what it was painted with....if it is an awlgrip product, they have their own wax/sealer...
