Ready-Strip vs. Interstrip

Hello gang,

I am preparing for the removal of some topside paint (Interlux Brightside) which was applied in the last 3 years. I am torn between Ready Strip Marine Paint Stripper and Interlux Interstrip. While Interlux recommends the Interstrip (of course), it is much more expensive than the Ready-Strip. And, since R-S is a gel I'm wondering it it would be more effective. Anyone out there have experience with either product? Thanks in advance!

Well

You have to use a fiberglass SAFE material which Interstrip IS and Ready Strip Marine claims to be

You need much warmer weather for the safe stuff to work and right now it way to cold outside as even 60 deg is marginal

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Tommays point about temperatures is very key, as the ambient temperature affects the reactivity of the strippers and the warmer it is, the better they will work. Unless your boat is in a heated shed, stripping the topsides will have to wait until spring.

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.
