Help Needed Black Spots on Gel Coat

I have started to develop some hard to remove spots near areas that get damp from rain, dew or air conditioner run off. I have tried using a polishing compound and while it will eventually remove the spots it takes a lot of work. The picture below shows what I'm dealing with. To the right side of the picture is the area I cleaned with polishing compound by hand. What you see is 2 or 3 min of hand rubbing. Black streak cleaner does nothing. Does anyone know what I'm dealing with and how to remove?

I have fount out that a 50% mix of water and Super clean will remove almost any stains. Spray it on and wait a few min and wipe. It is also going to remove the wax.
