Default Oily waterline stain

Last Saturday I used the Buff Magic and ProPolish with my dual action polisher. Boat is on a trailer.

I put it in the water on Sunday, and when I put it back on the trailer there was a black, greasy stain on the entire waterline. Probably from the two-cycle outboards. I have a four-cycle Yamaha.

I thought this would wash right off, but it stuck. Tried all sorts of cleaners and detailing sprays with limited success. I thought it would rinse right off, with the fresh sealant from the day before.

Thoughts and suggestions?

Yesterday I tried using 100% (undiluted) Brite Wash on the stain, let it sit about five minutes, and then brushed it with the medium brush.

Stain is still there.

Sorry I didn't get back to you over the weekend. Brite Wash is a boat soap and can't really help with built up waterline stains. Have you tried our SMC? It's designed for tough topical stains and should clean up that black streak when combined with a microfiber towel.
