Default Scratches on Bow

Picked up a new formula yesterday. Unfortunately wife layed down on the hood to clean the deck and her metal buckle scratched the boat. The boat is all white gel coat, no paint. Any advise as to how to get the scratches from the buckle out. They are like thin grey lines. Thanks for your help.

They Should Rub Right Out With A Little Wax Cleaner And Elbow Grease.

If the scratches are not too deep try some Flitz, Wenol or Semi Chrome. These work wonders on gelcoat. Follow up with a wax.

Wife should only be allowed on boat with a thin bikini with no (metal parts) from now on!

Ohhhh,, What you need to get the scratches out? I thought you wanted a name of a good divorce attorney.
Try Meguires Cleaner wax first its real easy on the paint and should lift it right out. If not any of those "as seen on TV" type light scratch removers at the auto parts store will work.
