The best cleaner for Whaler floors is called
Bar Keepers Friend. You will find it in any supermarket detergent center. It's perfect for fiberglass and it cleans real bad stains.

Try it.

I have heard that Clorox bleach based products will damage gelcoat. Try West Marine's deck and floor cleaner first. Mineral spirits will clean up grease, tar and oil stains. Sudbury's HD fiberglass cleaner, in powder form, may also work. Like the Barkeepers product, it contains Oxalic acid.

to further Larry's comments, Whaler specifically states not to use bleach or cleaners that have chlorine in them. the Same is true for any cleaners that have ammonia in them.

I thought that deck cleaner was glorified
soap.(wrong)I agree with Larry.First wet
down the non-skid deck then squirt on
your favorite deck cleaner,scrub good,
rinse clean.
