You could also try leaving the boat in the water for a while then taking it out and trying to clean it straight away; I normally find cleaning green crap off the underside of the rear of the tubes easier when the boat has just come out of the water, as opposed to when it has had time to dry.

PS. Whilst RIB Revive/RIB shine/TFR are great for cleaning, I doubt they'll shift this particularly well
Would you mean something like `T-cut' or is that too severe?
