Try scrubbing with a nailbrush and Tesco value biological washing powder mixed to a paste. I find it gets almost everything off-even oilstains on concrete if left on long enough.

I have got a similar problem that a tarpaulin cover has made on my sib. Tried all sorts of stuff, but this morning i was in Morrisons and bought a bottle of there own brand lemon "jiff "type of cleaner, 80 pence ish. Anyway, give it a quick try when I got haome and it works a treat, and it smells nice aswell :O)

I'd just leave it. Blood stains look great on a SIB, and are a clear sign that the boat is being used in a proper manner.
