removal of Paint

Any advice off anybody on a product that will remove paint off gelcoat with out damaging the gelcoat beneath. Somebody has painted all over the gelcoat on my boat and I want to clean it off back to gelcoat so I can see what is being hidden.

I went through the same process as you about a year ago. I had a lot of different types of paint to remove and it took several months. It is hard work but can be done if you've got the time and inclination.

have a look at these threads:-


Hull Refurbishment

It can be done with care.
