    thats a million dollar question! Too many variables -if they will come off at all. If they were hand lettered with sign painters enamel-you can try easy-off in a spot that isnt seen to see if the paint reacts to it.

    wetsand/rubbing compound with a DA. it'll take some time but using a chemical on your paint might remove more than you're hoping...

    Seams I remember something about a similar situation some time back.
    If the boat is painted in lacquer and the lettering is enamel do a test spot with some enamel thinner and see if it affects the lacquer. If it doesn't hurt the lacquer you might be OK.

    I've used Goof off,graffiti remover, and enamel reducer. Just try some on a rag, a little at a time. Last one i did left a red tint in paint. Then i parked it in the sun for a week and it was gone. Just be slow and take you're time. Good luck

    X2, I recently did this for a customer, not knowing how much clear is on the boat doesnt help either...but to take precaution...Mask off the area that you dont want to have to mess with, I used 1500 wet and tried to sand with the brush strokes, then when it was mostly all gone, I block sanded the entire area until it was gone, as it got real close to all being gone, I changed the grit to 2000, and was ready for buff in no time, just my opinion.

    400??? wow that sounds really aggressive! would a 1000 with a little more elbow grease be safer?? Just curious......
    And the new project begins!

    A freash sheet of 1500 is pretty aggressive when using your fingertips, thats why I started with that, the lettering enamel sands off real quick, so if you can get away with leaving more of the surface paint the better!
    After re-reading Luckys last post, I noticed the 400 that he used, I rerely use 400 on any painted surface, mainly for a run, but those are few and far between! you would think I was a marathon participant! lol
