A few more questions

Thanks to everyone for the quick and thorough responses to my previous questions. Just a few more(yeah right)...

1. The hull hasn't been cleaned in quite some time and has gotten pretty dingy especially around the waterline. What's a bullet proof way to get that nasty
"ring around the boat" off. I also have the same issue on the sole of the cabin due to an overflowing bilge that was neglected.

2. We will be renaming her and rechristening her, any suggestions on where to go for applique lettering that I can apply myself?

I'm sure I'll have some more this week, thanks again for the input, this forum is in a word.....AWESOME!!!

I used toilet bowl cleaner on my hull.The stuff is a gel so it sticks on a vertical surface. Try a small spot first.

On and Off works great for removing stains from gelcoat. It is a fairly strong acid, so used rubber gloves and rinse off as soon as the stain is gone.

BoatUS and West Marine are good sources of boat lettering and graphics.

Use MaryKate On-and-Off, but make sure you get the GEL, not the liquid.

Wear gloves with this stuff, it is a fairly strong acid compound. Try not to get it on metal. Do not get it on the bottom paint, as it will deactivate it.

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.
