Vandals have caused big problem, need help
A few of you know that i sold my avon to friend a year or so back.
He has had a few problems that we have overcome, mostly by reading stuff on this forum.
Recently he got a bad cut in the boat , and we have now got the right glue and just need to put the patch on.
But now some dirty little rotter has vandalised his garden adn thrown white Hammerite paint all over the place.
The avon has taken a lot of the paint, it was turned upside down so the underneath hull has a load on it and some of the sides as well.
Now ive been intouch with the makers of hammerite and they can only say that hammerite thinners might get some of the paint off but have no idea if the Hypalon would or could be damaged in the process.
Now i know this is very unusual, but if anybody knows what we could use to get the hammerite paint off without doing the rubber material any harm we would be very gratefull.
The boat was dirty before the paint got chucked on it so that might be a blessing.
we know its hammerite as the tin is still in the garden, along with a load more paint.
i think about 1/4 litre of paint has gone on and around the boat.
any help or ideas please let us know asap.
we dont know if the chemical reaction of the hammerite will destroy the Hypalon ??????
