Of course while taking out the steering RAM I am replacing, I spilled fluid all over the engine well. Any advice for cleaning? My local mechanic says a strong commercial cleaner...simple green type....will do the job, but then again, his boat is a mess!

What have you tried? Did Simple Green not work? There's no special remedy here - and you really caN't hurt gelcoat as long as you don't use an abrasive. SG, Dawn, acetone... whatever works.
