What’s the best way to remove the sticky residue that remains on a fiberglass hull after removing keel easy strips?
Goo Gone. If the adhesive has dried, I put a piece of scrap cloth on it and soak it for awhile. You have to use some elbow grease, but it does a good job.
If that doesn’t work, lacquer thinner works to remove every pressure-sensitive adhesive I’ve encountered. Just don’t get it on painted surfaces (gelcoat it OK).
Advice so far Is spot on. Residues from the older formulation. The new stuff has invisible adhesive on the back of the strip. The tacky it he sieve is used on poly Kayaks now.
