I've been searching for a new skiff for about a month and after missing out on a pristine/restored HPX I may have found another good boat but it needs cosmetic work.
The current owner did not use a boat cover and as you can see in the photo he had a fish measuring tape decal on the deck that got fried. The boat needs a good cleaning and detailing but I'd like to know if I can remove the decal without too much damage. It's baked on good. Trying to avoid the expense of new non slip or Awlgrip.
I ran a granite countertop shop for years we would make a paste out of hydrogen peroxide , baking soda & couple drops of dish soap. Make it thick. We used it to pull stains out of the stone , usually red wine.cover w plastic wrap ,tape down the edges ,let it work. Hours. Starving it for oxygen is suppose to make it pull harder .It works on my non skid well I’d stay away from any kind of mechanical cleaning , too easy to burn thru the finish.
