Re: i am re-naming my boat '5200'

Well I love 5200, but then I grew up on wooden fish boats ! and 5200 kept the poor boy fishing fleet afloat!! LOL really I do love the stuff, a piece of plywood and some 5200 will stop a leaking hull everytime!! And over the years Ive used a ton of it ! I also wear 2 or 3 pair of nursey rubber gloves, (from the wife of course!) and I don't ever have leak problems when I bed something with 5200. And its easy to remove bedded items from the deck or what ever with a hunk of guiter string, with a couple of wooded handles!! I guess it all comes down to how sloppy a workman yall are LOL !! just sayin Ive seen boats that would never sail without 5200

Try vinegar. And welcome to the CF.

Re: i am re-naming my boat '5200'

thanks everyone !!! you are all hysterical...typing this with my 5200 imbedded fingernails... well i have upped the quota and am off to by another 100 dollars worth of the wonderful mysterious marshmallow goodness - i have discovered it FIXES everything - if is is rust colored - TURN it WHITE colored ! it if sticks up and it shouldn't - put on a pile ! i really feel like i am getting somewhere - i have a double 'marshmallow' ender now and am working my way toward the middle - i might not even have to haul it anymore if i tie my feet to something and just hang over the rail and apply lots of %@)) - i mean 5200 - that was 5200 in Caps.... i for sure could put it off for another year since the whole thing will be 100% waterproof - but my neighbors might have a little problem with my polka dotted blue boat- Andiamo is feeling very pampered if not down right tickled- i think an ugly boat is a sort of insurance anyway- i still have the acetone hangover and i think it has affected my hips- BUT ITS WORTH IT... right???? but really - another gallon of acetone and Andiamo will be someone ELsES boat ... owwwwww

Re: i am re-naming my boat '5200'

5200 isn't the demon you guys make it out to be. I don't think the stuff even sticks as good as it used to. Acetone, alcohol, or vinegar do not work well for removing it but mineral spirits (paint thinner) work great and is not harsh on your hands. I always use lots of masking tape and disposable gloves but paint thinner takes it right off every time. 4200 is the less aggressive version of 5200. 5200 fast cure also has a less aggressive bond, or if you use some from an old tube that has thickened some you will get also get a lesser bond. 3M's UV4000 is really neat stuff. It stays white longer in the sun, it cures very fast, you have to work quickly because it starts to skin right away. You can put it in service almost immediately. I do a lot of inflatable dinghy repairs with 5200. Sometimes it works great and sometimes it peels right off, I am not sure why. It is good to find a use for the leftovers in the tube before it hardens, you can rebuild the soles of your Crocs with it. If it has hardened in the spout of the caulk tube just slit open the side of the tube and gun it out that way. 5200 works great on a boat it is the cheap silicone sealant that you should stay away from.

Mentioned vinegar for epoxy. It wouldn't work for much else, obviously.

When I use Sikaflex, the joke is
that my hair has gone prematurely
Sikaflex white.

Re: i am re-naming my boat '5200'

5200 should be a controlled substance, and require a permit to obtain or use.
