Both lemon ammonia and bar keepers friend worked. I found bar keepers friend a little easier to apply and not get spots (didnít have a great spray bottle for lemon ammonia)

bar keepers friend was wet surface, sprinkle on, scrub in with deck brush , let sit for 5-10, scrub again, let sit, maybe rub one more time with brush and hose off

Deck sprayer works best for the ammonia, not a regular spray bottle.

danm i would be livid

not only do you need to get the staining out, your entire boat needs a complete detail/wax after

i would get his insurance/yard's insurance and take up a claim with them direct (avoid using your insurance unless a complete last resort)

Luckily all parties remained calm, and the owner admitted his massive mistake and wants to make things right. He is going to be claiming this through his insurance...now to get estimates during the busiest time of the year around here. One marina said 'i'm not even going to quote this...we're a month behind already with existing customers'...onwards!

get 2-3 estimates and go with the higher one to submit to insurance. you are not locked in to use them. i would also see if they can expedite since its a busy time and let them roll it into the estimate. best case you have a check in a week or two after getting the estimate to the insurance company.

I've had this happen several times in S FL yards. Seems that just a weeks worth of S FL sun took care of it; same with Queen Palm reproductive parts that fall on deck and make a mess. Same issue. Compounding is NOT a fix. Neither is On and Off acid.

I know you donít want to have to do all the work but try the bar keepers friend. It didnít take much to do the whole top side of my boat. The. Hire out the wax after she is in the water.

Id try in a small spot

Let him get the insurance money first

Then he can choose hose he spends it

I'm guessing $4-5k?

I had my 32 sportfish accidently gunite(ed), by a neighbor shooting a pool. Now, THAT is a mess. A detailer, paid by the gunite company make it right. You will have a bad day walking on your deck with cured portland cement on it. And the tower pipes all had to be cleaned up.

I edited my responses to include using a deck sprayer. a spray bottle might be sort of ok for a small area but not an entire boat

Gents- Thanks for all the advice and support. Worked through his insurance and came up with a number that keeps everyone happy & a plan of attack.

Nice!

If you dont mind sharing (later is OK) what the damages amounted to that could be helpful as a reference point if someone has the same issue in the future

Whenever I sand my bottom w/ my Festool RO150FEQ and my dust collection system, there is almost zero dust that isn’t captured.

The abrasive paper lasts a very long time too.

Sorry for your problem. I hate being at a working marina because it is so dirty.
