I need to remove the stickers from my OT Penobscot 17 to make room for some custom decals that I want to use. Can I use “goo off” on Royalex? How about paint thinner? Thanks.
The answer to your question is…
Kinda funny, considering that the answer is a “hit topic” here on p.net! PEANUT BUTTER!!!
Peel the stickers off best you can. Any rmaining “sticky substance” and “paper backing” can then be removed, by rubbing peanut butter on with a rag. In a circular motion rub till “sticky-ness” is gone…
Cheap & effective!
wd-40 works well and at least your canoe won’t
squeak. On the label it says works on glue, I find that accurate.
My favorite is anchovy paste.
I used a plastic spatula
to carefully lift and peel old ID numbers and stuff. Gently is the key. No solvents. I like the peanut butter idea. I’ll try it next time.
If you want to get the stickers off easy use a blow dryer to soften them up first. Don’t use a heat gun on anything but the cooler settings.
