    Default White gelcoat & NC red clay stains

    Hey y'all.

    I've had to leave a couple of boats in the water here on beautiful, crystal-clear Lake Norman while doing things like repairing trailers etc. and have to get that blasted red/brown stain off the bottom now. I know there's something that'll bust it off, but short of rubbing compound I can't find out what it is, or the process that works best. It sure looks like crap on white gelcoat.

    Any suggestions?

    Try oxycholic acid. It worked well for me. Don't get it on your trailer...
