Hi Everyone,

This weekend I borrowed a friends "decal eraser" to remove the sun-baked decals off of a Hobie Tiger and couldn't believe how well it worked. It is just a rubbery disk that you put in an electric drill and touch to the decal. The results were amazing. I had first tried the traditional methods but they were so brittle that they would just break off in tiny pieces. I did six decals including the large "Hobie Tiger" on the sides in about 10 minutes, then spent another 15 cleaning off any remaining glue residue with some thinner. Do a google search for "Astro decal eraser" to see get more details. I have no affiliation with the company.

Mark

Neighbors are great.

My watched me suffer through the boat number (09) and then brought over the 3m wheel that attaches to your drill. WOW!
Had the whole boat done in two beers time. If you need one they are available on Amazon.
