Removing a painted boat name

Another one from the University of YouTube. How about these nice women from Long Island?

I picture them traveling merrily around from marina to marina, removing and replacing boat names:

Easy-Off is the hot tip.

Old name


Apply Liberally, Wait 20-30 minutes


Some gentle scouring follows.

I was able to subsequently wipe off 99% of the Easy Off with a disposable damp rag, and did not wash it off into my marina waters.


A hint of yellowing remained on the gelcoat:


Wiping down with fresh water and vinegar removed any remaining yellow residue.


Time to order some new name decals.
