I second Dennis’s prescription. It does not need much heat, but a good scraper is key.
Don’t waist your time with a cheap metal blade scraper. Get a Bahco #665 ($25 on Amazon) which has a tungsten carbide blade. The blade will literally last you a lifetime without the need to sharpen. I purchased one about 5 year ago along with a replacement blade. I have used it from scrapping off bottom paint to toe rails. I have pretty much abused the scrapper, and I still have not needed the spare blade. - Paul E. 1981 C&C 38 Landfall S/V Johanna Rose Fort Walton Beach, FL http://svjohannarose.blogspot.com/ > On Feb 9, 2018, at 11:06 PM, cnc-list-requ...@cnc-list.com wrote: > > Date: Fri, 9 Feb 2018 22:05:58 -0600 > From: "Dennis C." <capt...@gmail.com <mailto:capt...@gmail.com>> > To: CnClist <CnC-List@cnc-list.com <mailto:CnC-List@cnc-list.com>> > Subject: Stus-List Removing Cetol > Message-ID: > <canir+ytwbh-g7egfb7qxznteqajpd0jyoixjgdwdklwv8pd...@mail.gmail.com > <mailto:canir+ytwbh-g7egfb7qxznteqajpd0jyoixjgdwdklwv8pd...@mail.gmail.com>> > Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8" > > How do you remove Cetol?
