Removing Silicone Caulk

10 posts in this topic

For some reason the previous owner of the boat I have, used what I think is silicone clear caulk to fasten a block of foam and and a block of the pink insulation styrofoam inside the boat. I think it is so he can use it to hook lures on it so they will be handy to switch quickly.

I think they are hideous and want to remove both. Is there any known way to remove the caulk without scraping or ruining the paint? I would think a razor knife would also scrape off the paint as well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks, I will give that a try.

Otherwise if there is no remover I am basically stuck with it, but will try to shave off as much of it as I can.

There's some stuff called Motsenbacher's Lift Off. It comes in 5 different formulas. One of them is for silicone caulk and great stuff foam. It worked for me when I took out a shower door last year. I got it at Home Depot.

Use the blade lightly to shave off what you can and then a little gas on a rag and rubbing works well.

I quit useing silicon!! even if you remove the bead there's yet the film left that I cant find anything to remove it.With that film NOTHING else will adhere over it! Great stuff but the only product you can use over it is itself.When old it peels off and dirt & grime imbeded in it is HARD to remove.

I haven't noticed any paint coming off. I've siliconed a couple of foam blocks on painted metal in the boat as well. Had them knocked off, I cleaned and remounted them. We've all spilt gas on our auto's paint when fueling up and I haven't noticed any paint coming off there either.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
