I prefer that to the sore wrist and hands from working with a heat gun and a scraper. I had put in about 40 hours of scraping this fall when a friend told me about the Citrus Strip. Was I glad to find this solution. I have completed all of the bright work that can come off the boat to my shop at home and am applying Bristol Finish. I have started on wood that is on the boat. If I had to scrape, it would take me another 30 - 40 hours. With the stripper, I am even trying it in the cold and it seems to be working ok. Not as fast but I have plenty of other projects to do while it does its work.
I'm bringing a Baba 40 back to its glory. Good luck with your project
I found Citrus Strip and spent all day yesterday using it.
Its perfect for my situation. I painted it onto all the teak
trim and when I reached the end I went back to the beginning and started cleaning
up with a scouring pad and Murphys Oil
I also did a test on the teak
and holly sole in the V Berth.
That really cleaned up. The deck
The temp in the boat was around 40 degrees and the Citrus Strip still worked perfectly!
A couple of places will have to be redone because I put it on too thin and it dried out rather quickly.
I had a fan going but according to the bottle its safe to use indoors. I don't seem to have any ill side effects this morning.
More to follow.
Thanks for the advice.
