The guy who built my aluminum fishing arch suggested that I use steel wool to improve the finish if ever it becomes dull or to remove small nicks, pockmarks, scratches, etc…. I spent a number of hours this past winter giving my fishing arch a new finish it desperately need. Looks like new. Problem is, I didn’t think to remove all the steel wool dust particles that fell to the deck resulting from the job. I figured I was putting the boat in the water in a few weeks anyway and would clean it then. That was a mistake; the steel wool dust quickly rusted (practically overnight) and stained the fiberglass deck. I tried scrubbing it with minimal results but it still looks terrible. Any suggestion on how to remove the rust from the deck?
