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.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
