Read again!

No I didn`t.

1) I did rinse the boat carefully first using a pro pressure washer
2) I used a water hose to keep the tubes wet during the cleaning process
3) I used Rib Revive, like I have done since 2005, and the pads.
4) I did not use excess force
5) I did not see any scratches before after the water dried from the tubes

It was a grey day without sun since I prefer to keep the tubes cool (to avoid water marks and drying chemicals)

Aerospace protectant 303 + microfiber cloth. Takes even the most stubborn spots.

I had some scratches like that and used a pad with some of the thinners used for the Hypalon Glue. They came straight out I had some deeper ones too that I got out with a Ribshop pad and some thinners (you might feel a bit windy about trying that of course).

Product - HEN002004

I have used the Ribshop pads and Rib Revive however I should add I would only use it on seriously dulled or dirty tubes it is strong stuff. For normal cleaning then just soap and water followed by some of this (on same page as above)

Product - HEN002089
