It isn't as drastic as you think! I would avoid leaving tar remover on there as it may stain or damage the gel coat as it is a solvent based product.
If you want to give the acid bath a go, follow these instructions;
You can use alloy wheel cleaner (an acid, sometimes hydrofluoric, sometimes hydrochloric)
Have available - one clean cloth, One wet chamois (damp), Polish and cloth, razor blade.
1. Spray Acid onto clean cloth, make wet. Wipe over infected area
2. Wipe off quickly with damp chamois
3. Apply polish
3a (if stubborn, using weight of blade only, gently slide across mark on body)
4. Buff off polish immediately.
