How many times has this popped up this summer? Doesn't anyone do their homework or read the label on the friggen bottle prior to screwing something up?

looking for some help, but thanks for your worthless 2 cents!!!!

Try sending a pm to slowinhavasu or some of the other detail guy's. I believe one of them is socaldetail. Also search the treads, this topic has been brought up a lot. I dint pay to close attention to them as my boat has not had this problem. Hope this helps.

it is a 04 23ft genesis. We had changed the name of our boat, and used some paint thinner on it , and followed up with carnuba wax. There are some ther spots just above my cf#s

First I would try 3M Marine Rubbing Compound. If this doesn't work you may require wet sanding by a pro with 2000 or 3000 paper.

Mine is a 03 232 and I've been using Maguires yellow wax since it was new and never had a problem. I did have some scratches from a sandy football which I sanded out with 2000 sandpaper and rubbing compound can't even tell where they were. I think Genesis sprayed a good clear before the sprayed the color so you should be able to sand it out if need be. I would start by stripping the wax first.

Use workout on a foam pad and low speed buffer, and then rewax (don't use carnuba). And then put on your sunglasses. Warning: you might have a clean spot on your boat when finished. :)hand

if none of the said above remedies help your situation out, grab some 2000 grit sand paper rub a small area and see if it lightens up, if so, you may be doing it to the entire yellowed area of the boat, then using some compounds and polishes for a new finish on your boat, if you are not comfortable in doing this, and you are in the vacinity of Montclair Ca, i will do a test on your boat for you at no cost, but you will have a small white spot with any luck at all!
