Mildew - Help?

Just taken my Bombard Aerotec 380 out of storage after three years and have discovered that the white rubbing strake is now almost black with mildew stains. The rest of the boat is in almost perfect condition.

I have tried bleach, petrol and thinners combined with pressure washing and scrubbing but it's still being pretty stubborn - any ideas please?

Thanks in advance.

Will

Thanks for that, which is best do you think? The stains are pretty tough!

I have exactly the same problem with a Cobra that I have recently brought. I am going to do some cleaning tomorrow so will let you know how I get on!
