    Default looking for some ideas on stripping clear off gelcoat....

    looking for some ideas on how to strip automotive clear coat that is bubbling up and lifting off of the original gel coat on an older fiberglass boat i am restoring... wondering if there might be a chemical stripper available that won't damage the gel under the old clear, or am i going to end up having to sand the entire boat down? thanks

    If you happen to find a good way to do this, I would really be interested. My boat was cleared over the gel also... And it would be cool if I could strip it down without sanding..

    I'm doin this to my boat right now, so I called up TRG and he gave me some good advise . I didn't fill comfortable using a DA sander to it so i'm using a razor blade .. I have found that with a spray bottle and some water with alittle soap in it makes the job alittle eaiser and alittle more forgiving .. It's very time consuming but its coming along pretty good. I'm just doin the top so its not that bad ..
