how do you remove your rust stains?

I like Wichinox for stainless, but have never tried anything for fiberglass.

Going to start my bow anchor locker install today, and need to remove the rust on the deck from the cleats.

There are a number of purpose made products.....if you Google I'm sure you'll have something over there

Yes, I have done the Internet search, but was looking for input from actual users.

Maximus is probably A4 Stainless, so can't help much...

You want Y10. Expect to pay mucho dinero for same.

If you're a cheapskate like me, buy some Oxalic Acid powder and mix a gel with wallpaper adhesive. Brush on, wash off. Use PPE, avoid metals other than s/steel, terms & conditions apply, E&OE.

I bought a bottle of septone rust and stain remover (Rust Stain remover 750mL, Septone Products Australia) for the boat Ive just sold. It removed everything with ease.
