Once you get the water spots off. Treat the windshield with some rain-x and water will never stick to your windshield again.

Default water spots

have used Meguirs PlastX for both boat and bike windshield. apply with soft cloth and remove with microfibre towel. works well, leaves sparkling finish.
you can find @ advance auto as well as many other retailers.

There is a cleaner called "Wink" it is a rust stain remover, it is an acid wear gloves it will melt your finger nails and burn your finger prints off. Hose or sponge water on the fiberglass below the window you are going to clean to take care of any product that runs.

Get a paper towel fold it in quarters squirt a bit of wink on the paper towel and rub the window with it, work from the top down. This will absolutely take off salt etching on windows I have done it on tons of boats. When done put rainex on the window to stop it from happening again.

another good one is plastx by mcgiures. can be found in most parts stores.
use on the boat windshield, side/front curtain windows (prevents yellowing too) as well as motorcycle windshield. buff off with microfiber towel.

Default Water spot removal

The Florida sun is notorious for water spots. My theory: calcium in the water. Here is what I have had success with:
a. Vinegar and water. Keep wet and repeatedly rub spots.
b. TSP and water. Keep wet and repeatedly rub spots.
c. Magic Eraser
d. Chrome Polishing Compound and very fine bronze wool
e. Meguiarís, Starbright, or 3M cleaner wax, and very fine bronze wool

I also treat the windows with RainX every other month. To clean the windows, use Turtle Wax Express Shine (TWES). I also use TWES every time I return to port to clean the screens of my electronics. There is something in TWES that coats the screens so that they repel dust, salt and water. I was advised a long time ago that TWES will not effect the sun protection coatings on the electronics.

For whatever itís worth: I use TWES on the windshield and chrome of my Harley. When I return home, the bugs just seem to wash right off without sticking to anything, glass, chrome, paint, etc. I am a huge TWES fan.
