Now there's another cracking idea, thanks

As it happens I have access to a 30cfm (approx) three phase compressor at work - not sure if there is an air sander around or not, but I'll have a look....

Otherwise I will probably end up trying the sander I have using the electrical safety equivalent of "squinting while angle grinding to save going to get the goggles". Although one problem is that I can't find any scourers that are big enough to cover the whole flat thingy (tech term) on the sander.

So if I disappear without trace leaving a half orange boat you'll know what happened

Jeez, you don't half like giving yourself hard work. Just wipe it with thinners. I see your boat is wet. Make sure it is dry first.

It was only wet because I hosed off the Rib Revive.

Surely thinners will only "thin" whatever they are intended to thin e.g. if you try and dissolve mud in methylated spirits it won't work...? What sort of thinners had you got in mind? Anything that makes life easier is worth a try

Just used some of that RIB Revive on my 18 month old tubes and it made tham like brand spanking new. I am well impressed to say the least.

"It does what it says on the can".

Excellent stuff. Need to buy some more now.

You might try using a circular buffing pad on a chordless drill instead of your arms. Use it at low speed and I suspect you'll make short work of this job.

Good idea, cheers

Hope it does not get that dirty again though!
