SAFE PAINT REMOVER

I want to replace the painted on Boat''s name and port with vinyl lettering (the paint job looks terrible by the PO)
I want something that will be safe for the gel coat but still be able to take off the old paint without too much hassle.
Any suggestions??

This is a real neat idea (and relavively inexpensive). Make a name board.

Shape a name board from mahognay or teak and take it to sign maker with you boat''s name and have it laser engraved. Then you can paint the engraved area with a sign paint (available in small quantities at most any paint store). I recently had one engraved for under $40. And let me tell you it looks 10X as good as any vinyl lettering or painted on name! Contact me if you want pictures.

Try Interlux Interstrip 299E. I have NOT (intentionally) used it on gelcoat. Interlux says it is NOT harmful to fiberglass! Some did manage to run from the cap rail that I am stripping over top the masking tape and onto the hull. Discovered an hour later, there was no sign of damage at all. Interlux has a pretty good web site that you should have a look at wrt their Interstrip product before you take my (or anyone else''s) recommendation to the side of your boat.

Good Luck
