Re: Remove old painted name from hull

I successfully used oven cleaner on my boat to remove the name on both sides of the bow. It took 2 goes (maybe because it was cold?) but worked beautifully! Now to get the name off the transom and rename her. Hopefully Neptune approves!

I used oven cleaner and it was most successful.

However, it just removed the pigment. There is a colorless raised bump where all the letters were. Its relatively obvious.

Re: Remove old painted name from hull

When I first got my boat, I compounded the gelcoat using an orbital buffer to bring back the color. When I got to the transom, I compounded as usual and didn't even think twice about the painted on name. Somewhat to my dismay, I discovered that I was accidentally compounding the painted on name right off.
I don't know if it works when you're doing it on purpose or not!

Oven cleaner worked great! Two coats over a one hour period removed all but the outline. I'm going to try again next weekend before I give up on it. If that doesn't work I'll try the compound method next, as it's the least destructive.
