Re: A facelift of SandPiper, FS14

I use contact cement any time gluing something flexible on something else. But never plan on removing it either. 8O Wonder if the blade/scrapper attachment on the SOB tool would help the stuff come off faster? Or maybe a worn out wood cutting blade? Tried the SOB... Tonight I'm going to try a wire ...

Re: Aft storage compartments humming

First is identify the part of the boat that the noise is coming from, if it's the dividing panels I'd think about attaching battens about halfway up, screw or epoxy attached. Rather than masking the vibration you want to interrupt it if you can. It's the two panels.... Thinking the best way, using ...

Re: Aft storage compartments humming

Maybe those two for/aft bulkheads walling in the battery are vibrating? I'd wedge something between 'em, like a clamp reversed to push or even a couple of sticks forced in. Or someone to hold their hand in places when underway. Seems like that'd isolate the sound and then maybe your rubber type pai...

Re: A facelift of SandPiper, FS14

Got all the vinyl up, just a gooey mess under most of the aft deck and foredeck. The sole/cockpit deck is not so bad, not going to use chemical cleaners here, just sanding. I thought Nautolex adhesive no. 88, dried to a hard product. The stuff I used was water based and was used on a very humid day,...

Aft storage compartments humming

Aft storage compartments humming when OB is running. The hull and inside bulkheads are vibrating making a humming sound. The prop and prop shaft are fine, checked already. I have a lot of empty storage space in the aft compartments. . Just wandering if I should/could spray or paint the inside walls ...

Maybe citristrip? Rubber cement IS tough. Mechanical removal might be easier.

Re: HELP!! Anybody got a tip on removing rubber cement

Oily might stay in the wood and inhibit the adhesion of the epoxy... :doh: I assume the wood and fiberglass had been painted with a polyurethane paint, toluene doesn't cut that paint, just the adhesive, so should be no issue. The vinyl/glue was put down on top of the epoxy covering the wood.
