Thanks in advance for your replies.
I purchased a 2001 13 Sport a few weeks ago. The boat is in great condition but had not been waxed in a while. There were also some stains both inside and outside the boat. My brother recommended using FSR (fiberglass stain remover) to remove the stains.
I spent a few hours on Saturday applying FSR on the outside & inside of the boat. This stuff obviously removes the wax and turned the boat a shade of white that I did not know existed. Its great stuff! The problem was that although it appeared to rinse off when I washed the boat, it did not come off until I waxed the hull. It took a lot of elbow grease to buff the stuff off the hull. It also left the fiberglass on the inside of the boat very chalky in appearance.
1. Could this stuff hurt my gel coat?
2. I plan to apply Finesse-It before I wax the inside.

Are you talking about a commercial product called Davis FSR?
