As I'm guessing that it isn't going to wnat to come of nicely, in one big easy peel. And it would bite to be stuck (no pun intended) winding up, gently scraping off little shards & strips, on 1,000+ sqft of hulls. But someone please chime in if I'm wrong.
That, & I can't help but to wonder as to how much of a sticky mess, from adhesive
residue there may (will) be, too. After the vinyl's removed.
It's an "interesting" way to re-paint a boat. One which I guess I'll have to do some reading on. Given that it's a new one on me.
But on first glance, I can't help but to think that the con's might heavily outweigh the pro's. And that the lifespan of the vinyl, plus the possible difficulty in it's removal
, may be a big factor in her asking price
Especially as, I know that most of that type of material which I've worked with is a beast to remove, even when it's pretty new. Or such was the case when I did a lot of work in graphics, signs, & logos, anyway.
So the big question is, does Heinlein's addage apply in this case? TANSTAAFL!
Easy to apply, but a beast & then some to remove?
