Post Subject: Paint stripper

I am hoping to paint my boat as the previous owner made a bit of a hash of it.Could i use a paint stripper to remove his handy work and if so what would be the best to use.

You could but as to which is best I have no idea. I think it will tend to be expensive and smelly. If I was going to do it that way I would use one of the modern ones that you apply and then cover with polythene so it can work without drying out. I think most professionals use a Scabbler or some other mechanical means. Much depends upon what you mean by a bit of a hash. It may be that diligent attention with a mechanical sander of some sort will remove much of the old paint leaving a good surface upon which to start the paint process. Lets have some more reader's views please. Tony Brooks
