Soy Gel stripper remove bottom paint
I have read past posting as to scrapping, sanding, blasting bottom paint. Been there, paid for it. Besides I would have to pull trailable 200 miles to boat yard in Deltaville VA to have done. The bottom is dried out over three years, so I want to take down to the gelcoat, glass any blisters, and put an Interlux barrier on bottom.
Looking at Soy Gel to remove. Does anyone have experience using? I have read the Practical Sailor article from 2006, but I would rather get folks I trust give me advice. The alternative as one past post had was to get buddies give then $100 each and go to it with scrappers.
When I go, let it be by boat, with a steady breeze on the Chesapeake with a bottle of 7-up, a bag of ice, a plastic cup, and a box of wine
