My boat looks hazy after removing the stain.

Updated: Jan 9, 2018


Stains can make your gel-coat not look that appealing. Who wants a brown rust stain running down the side of the hull or flybridge? You do your best to maintain your boat in between your annual details by keeping up with a maintenance schedule; washing, waxing, cleaning bilge, vinyl treatment, deck washing and so forth. You notice a that all annoying brown stain running from one of your drains, so you attack it with some FSR, WHO WOULDN'T?


After applying several applications of FSR to remove the stain and rinsing with water you notice the area where the stain was at is looking cloudy. One of two things has happened. One, you probably didn't rinse the FSR off good enough or the FSR broke down the wax you had protecting your gel-coat and it no longer looks shiny.



What do you do now?

Well, you can have your detailer address that area of concern for you when you are scheduled for your next boat wash or for the do-it-yourself boat owner you can reapply wax to that area. It's that simple. If you don't have access to an electric rotary buffer or an D.A. all you need is some good wax, microfiber rag, applicator and some elbow grease.


  1. First make sure you remove all the FSR from the area you applied it.

  2. Second, apply wax in a circular motion to the area your are waxing with your applicator.

  3. Third, buff the area with a clean microfiber. Keep repeating until you get the desired result.
