This is the stuff I initially recommended—I now get little to no soot.

People swear by this diesel fuel additive. Doesn’t deposit black soot on the hull.

Hi,
we love our Amel 54 but we constantly struggle to keep the exhaust side of the hull clean. A battle we often loose and after just another couple of days that black spot on the side start growing back - So frustrating.

It’s also very difficult to get rid of the soot as it seems to grow into the gelcoat. When in NZ we polished the boat with SealX and the result was stunning - for a couple of weeks.
Over time we’ve tried many many products but we still struggling and it’s so hard to clean the soot away and to keep the hull side clean. 

what products do you use to get rid of the soot?
We appreciate all tips and tricks:)
