    Default Re: Removing rubber skid mark from GRP

    +1 for Flash Magic eraser. Its great on GRP. Its gentle yet can effectively remove fenders marks, scuff marks from shoes, the mark you get if you bump a wooden pontoon, marks from bumping into rubbery pontoons.

    I just use any liquid wax I have handy. They solvents they're dissolved in always seem to just clean most anything. And you get to keep a nice shiny wax

    I tend to avoid liquid waxes because I always end up spilling them, but a solid wax or polish such a Starbrite seems to work as well.

    My friend was, hypothetically, on the pontoons at Ulva where he or she may have discovered that the CCC books mention of a gentle northwards flow on the flood overlooks a whacking great southward from on the ebb.

    Less "on" than "pinned across the end of" but yes, you are in the right general area.

    I sympathise. I don't know Scottish waters, being a Solent wuss but, last Saturday, I had six tries at picking up my mooring and then said a few words and decided to leave the boat on the Hardway pontoon, usually a pretty benign place, though the cross tide can make life interesting at times. The only available place was a little tight, but OK until I turned in. The wind took the bow and enough power to get it back out would have sent me straight into the boat in front. I was VERY glad of my little bow fender, but I suspect there are a few marks up forrard!

    My friend thanks you for your understanding and sympathises in turn.
