You guys are going to think im crazy but Power Quest Boats tells me to use Fantastic cleaner you can buy at any store sells home cleaners. Get a plastic scrub brush and a dry cloth for drying. It works amazing I don't have to scrub very hard and it brings it back to white like new!

I think they would easily disintegrate.

1 Boat Cover
2 Pine tar remover
3 Goof off
4 turpentine, kerosine.
Wash w water right after

I didn't quite catch that....does that mean the magic erasers are not safe to use on fiberglass or vinyl?

Big difference between fiberglass and vinyl, but you got it backward.
The magic erasers arre made for textured paint and vinyl, but they would quickly disintegrate if you tried to use them on something as tenacious as pine tar and that's not what they do anyway. You need a solvent for pinetar, like pinesol or Kerozine, terpintine, etc. , and flus w h2o promptly.

If you have Waxing Frenzy!, it will remove the pine stains quickly, easily, and without damaging the gelcoat.
