Rib Lettering

Hello,

I am trying to remove some lettering off a rib I have recently purchased.

I got the actual letters off, but there is still an "imprint" of the lettering on the tubes.

Please see the attached pictures.

I have tried different options - boiling water; cif type cleaner; petrol; label remover.

Does anyone know of any good methods to get this off the tubes?

Thanks.

Came off on ours and we used Polymarine Hypalon Cleaner repeatedly followed by the Hypalon protector.

Thanks Chris.

What colour is your rib? Did the cleaner effect the colour of the tubes?


We tried Ribshine but it didn't make a dent.

What you need now is a custom name patch from Henshaw Inflatables

Thanks for the suggestion.

My issue is that the rib is an ex school boat so there is a lot of lettering down each tube.

"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" was always a favourite boat name of mine....
