Default Rust stains

Any way to remove rust stains from starboard? Ive used Marykate on/off and soft scrub but nothing seems to work!

You could try Bar Keepers Friend...Oxylic acid is the main ingredient... I find it works better than murionic acid. Just wash and wax the starboard when you are done as the Oxylic acid is caustic and will eat wax. If that doesn't work, acetone may.. If that doesn't work, you could LIGHTLY sand it w/ 400 wet sand.

How big a space we talking?

Star Brite Rust Stain Remover?

Seems to get it off of everything I've used it on.

This is what I use as well for rust and water discoloration. Spray on, let sit and rinse off. Wax if necessary.

I've had good luck using toilet bowl cleaner containing HCL. A few years back my anchor fouled a piece of steel cable on a wreck that I fish. I managed to get it up onto my fore deck, but forgot to discard of it when I got back to dock. A week later I had a long messy rust stain on the deck and down the gunnels. I applied the cleaner liberally and watched the stain first turn green then disappear altogether. Wonderful stuff.

Collinite metal wax has worked better than all the above products for me.

"The Works" basic from the dollar store. Use it all the time to get rid of stains on fiberglass. wipe it on liberally and wait about 15 minutes before rinsing off.
