Some more;

It did get better when I applied the 3M UV protection but as it wears off the damages are quite easy to see.

Good one and thanks, it is not new but I do like to take care of my stuff. The boat have served me (very) well since I bought it in 2008. It stays in the water from late april/early may until october/november.

BUT,

It looked a lot better without the scratches and I know they are there.

I can definitely see the scratches here http://rib.net/forum/attachment.php?...8&d=1283958384

You can see they are circular where you have been cleaning.

Yes, they are easy to spot but difficult to photo. I would actually go as far as to say that the pads have ruined the tubes and I`m not about to let ribshop off the hook so easily.

So did you used to much elbow grease?

or try it on an unseen spot first?

Do you have pics of the tubes before cleaning?

My mistake, as mentioned earlier, I did not try it on a small area/unsees spot first

Why should I use elbow grease? We`re talking rubber/hypalon tubes and not a faded paint job on a old car.

Luckily I spotted the scratches before I finished the whole boat and 1/4 of it is not damaged. I could take pictures of this area and as you mentioned yourselves, it looks like new.
