Aliphatic Napitha will do the trick. It can be found at most hardware store or paint stores.

I seen masking tape described as the number of days you can leave on.

Blue tape is only a couple of days and I never use it.

I've painted cars and used the green tape with good results. The best I've found is called "fine line". It puts down a hard edge, resists solvent paints like awlgrip and can be left on for a week.

If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble.

The blue tape that was recommended above is good for upto 60 days. Not all blue tape is the same.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I've only used 2080 to mask off finished wood items & 2090 to mask off FG areas, though I've never left either on for longer than 10 days.

HANDS DOWN the best stuff for removing glue residue. Just be careful around any plastics. It will eat it up
