It takes some courage to keep on going when white fabric turns deep purple with ugly brown stains, but after the vitamin C treatment you can relax.
Potassium Permanganate crystals mixed with Glycerine is ahem "interesting"

Next was the turn of the Dettol mould + meldew remover 3.65 Asda, As before I left on for 5 mins No agitation this time and then washed off.
RESULT. No visible difference mould still remained.

Next was The famous Fairy Power spray 2 Asda, once again i left it on for 5 mins agitated it slightly then washed off.
RESULT. Wow Much cleaner BUTTTT mould still remained.

Finally Cilit Bang Black mould remover 3.75 and you no the drill by now.
RESULT. AMAZING BANG BANG all the mould except a few little bits has gone

In Summary of all the cleaners tried over the last couple of days you can't go far wrong with FPS, But if you need to get rid of mould then Cillit BANG black mould remover is the stuff to use.
Does any one have any suggestions for a good colour restorer / sealer

Add a dash of red diesel to ammonium nitrate, mix to a smooth paste, apply to tubes very carefully.

Thanks for all the comments. My proble isn't cleaning the tubes themselves. The problem is the black bumper strip on the outside of the tube. The black gets all over everyone that climbes into the boat. The boat is three years old and no matter what we put on the area nothing works. Help. Zodiac won't reply. Thanks

No Problem !
I can't take all the credit as bedajim suggested it.
I wish I had known this a few years ago as I had a little white rib with the same black spots but could not get them off.
I sold it cheaper because of them.
