paint removal?

Hi guys

I want to repaint my hull (choosing paint would be another question) anyway... the chap who owned it before me did a naff job! and on the bow has added what looks like sand to the paint I assume for grip but how the heck do i remove without ruining the original gel coat ??

any ideas

cheers

I've had considerable success with Removall 620. This is a relatively environment-friendly (and gel-coat friendly!) paint stripper specially formulated for GRP

You need patience (waiting 12 - 36 hrs), warm(ish) weather (i.e. not below 4 degrees C) and to cover with polythene and tape for best results. See instructions!

Just go easy with the scraper... especially if a sand / grit non-slip finish is part of the paint you're removing

Good luck, ian
