Rust stain on deck ?

Big mistake.... left the jerry can in the rib for a few days.... too much free whiskey after the 1720 European Championships..... and today I've been blessed with a nice rust stain on the floor. I've done a search on the site but only one answer.
So can anyone tell me if I can remove the rust stain and with what ? All help is appreciated.

Rust Stain

Hi Scotty, my dad has an Orkney Longliner white deck, he uses a fiberglass cleaning product called y-10, it is a blue jelly comes in a small plastic container available in all chandlers, u simply brush on the y-10 with a dry brush, wait 15mins and the mild acid in it will disolve the rust, it washes away with a hose off, its an amazing product, no scrubbing it does what it says on the tin.

Luke it is the only stuff, we use it on the rib, you are wasting your time with Ciff, petrol etc it disolves rust in about 15 mins and hoses off, try Western or Viking y-10 .Ar you heading to Southampton cheers gavin

definatly y10, its expensive but well worth it. I use it on the RIBs all the time, it's great on the hulls aswell as decks.

Y-10 is the stuff but expensive.

Cheapest place I have found selling it so far is Bembridge Chandlers at £8.81.
