One problem might be the number of coats Iím removing. This stuff is thick![/QUOTE]

Hope it went well today. I did the soles of two boats two weeks ago. One had at least 12 coats of finish. Since they were teak and holly plywood I did not want to remove the finish by sanding. I used the scraper but it took at least two applications stripper and scraping. Many spots took three applications and a few four.

I did follow up with sanding with 150#, 220# between coats. Total of seven coats.

The boats were 35' and 40' sailboats. Did the entire sole stem to stern. Both took about 5 hours of scraping.

North Pacific 39
