    Rust Stains in White GelCoat

    Any ideas on how to remove? Been trying to use CLR and a brass bristle brush.

    I wouldn't advise it. Vinegar is fine for the steel, but it *might* react strangely with what appears to be urethane on the heads.
    Unless the OP isn't bothered by hazy/discolored dbell heads. In that case, proceed with the full baptism.

    They make several marine sprays, go for the one in gel form it holds to the area better. I have used those as well as toilet bowl cleaner. That on/off is nasty and you want to rinse the trailer well if you use that. All of them work, sometimes it has to be done a couple times to clean it all up.

    Whink from the laundry cleaner aisle of the grocery store. Wet gelcoat, put Whink on it, watch the rust stain disappear, rinse off. Cheap and safe.

    Yes and very toxic........don't get it on your aluminum trailer or any metals on the boat or it will etch them.......plus the fumes are crazy.
