whats the going rate for super structure and deck detailing? Might hire this out depending on what insurance/other owner does.
depends on area, figure 20-25 foot for regular job so little more if they are doing the stain removal as well. May want it out of the water so they can also make sure the hull isnít stained and gets waxed from the run off of the deck

This has happened to us in the past. A product called boat magic will do the trick. it's a mild acid wash.

Default Solution to.your problem

This will do it. Use Hammerhead hull cleaner from Bright Bay. But there is a trick . I discovered this by accident with the same issue. Bottom paint dust. Nothing would take it off. You apply the hull cleaner and.then spray bleach solution on it. The reaction is instant Bleach white. I was blown away. Nothing else.touched it. On and Off hull cleaner usually is my go to. It did nothing. Try it you will be amazed.

Mr. sandmyster gets a bill for the damage and cleanup. Marina LET him do it for hours. Liability there too.

you really gotta wonder if people are that stupid, or just donít give a sh*t. I have a feeling itís both.

this is a lovely blue that has left the entire boat a blue/green/purple patina. Itís beautiful

so just straight lemon scented amonia?

I sanded my bottom fortunately away from others boats this year and have some staining I need to remove. Good news is boat is in need of compounding. Bad news is I now have some staining on my decks from bottom paint. I could have easily done this around other boats not knowing how easily it stained🤦

Why is buffing it out if you already need to the wrong solution?

Whats the best way to clean this mess up? I think I might call my insurance guy...
I feel for you. I would be so pissed off. Hope it all works out. Try raybos technique. Keep us updated. Good luck.

Had this happen to me. I used barkeepers friend and worked great. Just sprinkled a small amount on, sprayed lightly with hose, and lightly scrubbed all the stained areas. Let sit for about five ten minutes and then lightly scrubbed off while hosing it down. One pass and canít even tell it was ever stained. Make sure you spray all the barkeepers friend off when your finished.

I would try the suggestion (lemon ammonia) from the guy that's been at it "since 1964".

There was little wax to begin with looking at the stains.

I have had the same happen a few times over the years, it sucks, but it comes out over time (even though it does not look like it will)

buffing will not get it out without removing a lot of gel. you would actually damage the surface trying to get it right. it needs to be chemically neutralized

yes, we had this happen one damp morning we didnt even strip bottom paint we were just doing a repair and it got on the boat. it seemed like nothing worked then we tried the lemon ammonia and it worked amazing. I have never had someone I suggest it to say it didnt work

its not abrasive so thats good but I do suggest a good coat of wax when you are done.

Nothing will ruin a boat yards owners day faster than a blue dust plum on boats.
I will remember the lemon ammonia trick.
