Removing graphics

8 posts in this topic

If the graphics are the vinyl press on type, then applying heat with a hair dryer will soften it so you can carefully scrap it off.

What would be the best way to remove left over adhesive residue? Many forums dismiss things like goof off and really only refer to the use of elbow grease? What would you recommend?

I want to share something that will help you remove graphic from boat, as admin said you use hair dryer to remove graphics from your boat and try and get it to peel off. If not, try to gently pry it up with a plastic spatula or putty knife. To remove the excess sticky stuff use some WD-40. But clean off the excess immediately.

3M sells a disk called an Adhesive Eraser. Its a disk about 4"-5" in diameter and 1/2" wide. Its made to use with a standard drill. It does not harm the gel coat. It will wear down as its being used.

To make it as easy as possible for you, our Boat Names kits come in one piece and are sandwiched between a paper layer of transfer tape and a waxed backing.

Remove your boat name from its shipping tube. Let it flatten out in a warm room for 24 hours where pets and children can't find it.

Applying you new name is simple if you follow these instructions exactly. There are two different methods of appyling your names depending on surface type, Name size, and weather conditions. Choose the best method for your circumstances and read all the way through before starting.
