Most boat owners with older boats have dealt with mildew at one time or another. It'll penetrate into vinyl and stain it and also on single stage paint (with no clear coat). Rubbing compound may work if it's just on top of the surface, but if it's deep into the paint that you'll be removing a lot of paint to remove the mold/mildew. The only product that I have found that is highly affective is called Marine 31. Just spray it on and let it sit for a few minutes and then watch mildew disappear. Try to get the "non-gel" version if you can find it which is a lot more affective. I've never had a bad reaction with it before but it's a good idea to try it on a test spot first.

I have used Mother Mag and Chrome polish on that era of machine it work very well for me.
Might want to test an area first to make sure it is safe though.

Can this be used on the floor of the house, or is it toxic? I have a dog, and I'm worried about him getting poisoned. I live in an old house, and I think it's high time to change the floor, but I don't have the money to do it, and I use all possible measures to keep it in good condition. I was advised to contact https://www.ssrestore.com to get rid of excess moisture and mold. Has anyone worked with a company like this? Can they do something about old floors that have absorbed a lot of water, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, or is it better to just get a loan for new flooring?

Glad you didn't buy it. It looks like the beginnings of rust up under the paint.
