Re: Removing 5200

Man, 3m ought to force anybody buying 5200 to answer a short quiz regarding their intentions. Every step of the way it's been the same story.

1) Teak ain't cheap, so let's be gentle an see if we can save the piece.

2) Well, saving some of the piece might save some time by having a template for the new part.

3) Damn, removing this stuff is just a nightmare, the origianal coamings looked a little bulky and mahogany will look just fine.

I figure I have thirty hours invested in removing the beautifully contrived and riduculously installed teak trim from my Bluenose 24 restoration project.

This is a great product for bonding permanently installed items, and unless your boat is definitely going to the scrap heap within the next 20 years,. there ain't any permanent joints on your boat.

Just sayin'.
