fiberglass safe degreaser/cleaner?

Hi,

I need to clean the several decades of greasy grime out of the bilge of my new project and was wondering if anybody had a favorite product? I'm more used to the steel bits of a vehicle and didn't want to find out the hard way that the solvents are bad for boats.

Thanks,
Jason

jizer, tfr, any engine degreaser will be fine. Most solvents are ok too, infact I can't think of any common solvents that eat GRP
