Styrene Monomer Question

I have a gallon of styrene monomer I planned to use in thinning gel coat but it has hardened to a thick gel while stored. Does anyone know a way to liquify it with, say acetone, to restore it?

John - if you are still unsure about twins or wing, have you considered the twins will provide better maneuvering in tight places and may eliminate the need for a stern thruster.
