Stains

Post by salty gator » Sun Mar 08, 2020 2:23 pm

My wife’s yellow hobie had some leaves get in it ( in the garage). I guess they were wet and stained it some. A little oxallic acid or bleach gets it right off of fiberglass, but I’m not sure about plastic. Any advice? Thanks

I think if you move the leaves around you can stain the rest of the boat the same color.

Thanks Jeff. Are they going to be permanent? If so, I know a kid I can give it to. Otherwise I was going to try to get a couple of hundred for it.

At the shop, we always used soft scrub with bleach in it and a stiff brush. Scrub the stain well and let it sit for a few minutes but don't let it dry out. Rinse well.

Thanks FBB. I was also told oxallic acid works. I’ll try them both
