Re: Removing non-slip deck paint from grp

I seem to have 'di'solved it..... The no nonsense stripper from screwfix works ok but slowly, probably due to the cold as the boat is outside.

I will try the Wickes version next as it is a bit cheaper....

Thanks all for your help...

Re: Removing non-slip deck paint from grp

Hi, thanks for the advice. I'm hoping it's only standard international deck paint. It's flaking off and doesn't seem to be bonded to the grp. Can't really use a sander as it is in the bottom of my I14 with the stringers and fitting etc.

I will try some other strippers, cheers, Chris

Removing non-slip deck paint from grp

Does anyone know if there is a paint stripper that will take non-slip deck paint off GRP?

I have tried safe stripper (non aggressive to GRP) but it hasn't touched it!

I can't grind it off and I am reluctant to use a hot air gun...

Any ideas would be appreciated,

Chris

Re: Removing brass stews from keel?

A lot of the screws are breaking off at half the head when I try to unscrew them and the wood is getting damaged when I try to break off the other half.....

Any suggestions?

Re: Free masts and spinnaker shute

Hi Neil, I'm sure the wooden mast will be popular but if you can't find a home foe it let me know?

Re: Removing brass stews from keel?

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.

I have considered sawing through the screws along the line of the hog/keel.

What sort of saw would be best and should the boat be upside down or right side up?

Removing brass stews from keel?

Can anyone suggest a reliable way of getting the brass screws out of the keel on my Uffa 14? These are the long screws that hold the centreboard case on and they are impossible? To unscrew, usually half the slotted head breaks off and I have tried to drill off the rest of the head but often the dril...

Re: Dougal on the telly

Yes, nice piece David, it might be a way to get more people on the water. perhaps you could suggest to the TV team about doing an article on classic boats? It would be good to spread the word (broadcast :D )

Re: Aldeburgh YC 3rd and 4th September 2016

I don't think a clash would be a major issue as there were hardly any CVRDA members at this years BCBR, roger and me? Most of the entries were Bosham sailing club with few from other local clubs. Aldeburgh is a great venue, plenty of parking, easy access for boats and free camping I understand. A Al...

Yes, it is Tom's old boat, now painted blue but complete and original, needs a bit of TLC but sails ok still.

Re: Mast and boom for Firefly

Hi Gav, the boat is stored in Colchester, I have sailed it this year and as far as I can remember it is complete except for the rig, Wooden hull, no rot as far as I know but some repairs, put the mast on and you could sail. No trailer but a mirror launching trolley that works. Email me if you are in...
