I know this is to be expected of an 18 year old boat but I would like to know if anyone could suggest the best method or product I could use to bring it back to the original colour.
I've done a few searches and I know there have been many threads discussing tube revival but none that specifically refer to the strake which afaik is not made from the same material (hypalon)
Sorry if this one has
been brought up before but any advice will be appreciated...
Test a tiny corner somewhere with something like kerosine, or petrol, if that doesnt work.. something more efficacious for plastics like meths, or acetone (the wifes nail varnish remover) Dont substitute a quick fix of something powerful though, by a bit of elbow grease with something less so, as invariably the more powerful agents, will harm the base material more.
More than likely though its UV light that has faded the colour, and there might be no remedy for that
