I sealed my transom plate with 5200 & can't get it back off
Well, after heating, prying, pounding on it & cursing at it for over 2 hours I still can't get this son of a bitch off!!! It's destroyed now & has to come off by Mon since I'm leaving for MB on Tues. A friend told me about a chemical called Debond that's supposed to work well on 5200 which I'll get tomorrow, but I'm not sure how well it'll work since I don't know if it'll penetrate behind the plate where it's bonded to the hull.
I grabbed some chains & was ready to go look for a telephone pole to attach the damn thing to and yank it off with the truck, but figured I'd ask if anyone has any better ideas before I go full FL cracker.

Please keep us posted. I've sealed mine with 5200 as well
I'm praying to the ski gods that mine doesn't ever have to come off again.

I heat up a 12" long 1" wide stainless steel ruler (its very thin) and slide it between the glue and the transom plate a little at a time. You don't always have to use heat, but it will help if nothing else works.
Basically its like a hot knife although its not quite like cutting butter, but you will eventually get through it.
Good luck and leave the chains and automobiles out of it! Once you do get it off either use plain RTV or 4200 at the most when going back together.
