I just tried getting the waterline off of my aluminum boat. I haven't found anything that does a real good job. I have tried Never Dull,Awesome, boat wax, rubbing alcahol. Haven't tried soap pads or any chemicals. Awesome and scowering pads does the best job , but not really a clean job. There has got to be something out there to do a better job. Anyone have any suggestions. Thanks for any help.

Try Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. They have done a good job for me. You can use them on just about any thing.

OK....just kidding. Try some buffing compound (not too course), apply by hand.

Mine's been there since 2005. I gave up, and don't even think about it anymore.

I've used 3M scotchbrite pads, the green ones your wife uses to scrub those pots and pans, and simple green. Does a good job on my aluminum boat. Let the soap solution soak for a bit the scrub.

I bought a 94 Bass Tracker that looked like it never was cleaned with a nasty water line. A friend tried some FSR (http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_11151_10001_10975_-1?ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=10975&cid=sc_googlepla&gclid=CNnrrY7S97ICFRSSPAod-z0AGg) with a rag and it came off without any effort at all. DO NOT try Aluminex (http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_10051_14125_-1?Ntt=aluminex&Ntk=All) or any other product with similar ingredients unless you plan on major buffing and sealing/waxing. Believe me, I learned this the hard way!

I have used LUCAS slick Mist. It works well for me. The first time takes a little work but after that a light mist and wipes right off. You can find it at O'Reilly Auto Parts.
