If it is just plain old salt (NaCl) then warm water should fetch it off, it sounds like you have something else.

Has it been left in the water ?!Sounds like small crustaceans or gel coat blistering possibly.

If its the first one then this works really well. BUT it will take galvanise off trailers!

Has the boat been left in the water? Sounds like barnacles. A decent pressure washer should do it - or some work with a scraper. Best leave the vinegar for your chips

plastic or wooden scraper should get them off and not scratch the gelcoat.
