Water spots may form DO NOT WIPE. Let boat dry thoroughly. Then wash, rinse, and gently wipe dry. If water spots persist, apply second coat after scrubbing. If satisfactory results are not achieved, follow these easy steps:

  1. Use household ammonia in a spray bottle.

  2. Using a cloth or sponge, apply solution generously to one section of the boat at a time.  Allow to remain on the finish for several minutes.  Apply more as needed to keep the entire section wet.

  3. After several minutes, wipe with a scrub pad using a circular motion and firm pressure.  Continue scrubbing until the area looks clean and feels smooth.
