I wouldn't take acetone to a fiberglass boat. Acetone damages the resin. Lacquer thinner would be a better option.

But..........Any good cleaner wax like 3M or Starbright should do the job. I've used Starbright non skid cleaner with good results, too.

Cured fiberglass resin (polyester) is not effected by acetone. Acetone is used for cleanup in the laying up process but once it's cured acetone wont do a thing.
You're probably right. I was just going by what the guys told me at the SeaSport factory told me when I bought my boat. They said I could use lacquer thinner to my heart's content, tho. I really don't see any need to use acetone, anyway.
