Re: Remove your masking tape!

I don't leave the tape on any more then a few days now. I really like frog, it seems to keep varnish or cetol from bleeding under it better the then blue.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

An older wooden trawler showed up at our marina 4-5 years ago and the new owners started to work on it right away. Using lots of blue tape getting ready to work on the boat.
All work stopped, haven't seen anyone onboard for 4 years, but the tape is still there. I feel for whoever has to remove all that tape.

Brand new shiny gell coat? Probably little if any discoloration and what there is could be cleaned up with a good cleaner/degreaser.

Old dull chalky gellcoat? Absolutely! If you clean off the dead surface, the oil residue will probably go with it.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

Thanks- will stay away from it. Especially where there's little or no wax on the boat.

Re: Remove your masking tape!

Yes get the good stuff too, the 3M or as I have heard from several people frog tape is good. I am installing laminate floors for my X-wife and she got the cheap beige stuff and I am only leaving it on for about 10 min, just for cuts to help prevent chipping. And it leaves all kinds of mess behind. She was complaining about it, and I said "well have fun getting it off as that is the stuff I told you not to get." I figure if she saved the money by buying the cheap stuff, she should be the one cleaning it up.

yep, just like suntan oil or almost any other oil.

Well yes, but the kids need a nice place to live. I am currently there now as well, till I get my boat. We get along really well when not living together.
