    Removing Green Goop?

    I'm getting ready to reinforce the pump tunnel. What's the best way to remove the green goop over the hull inserts?

    I used an air chisel..but had the air turned down to where it hit soft enough to knock the green resen loose ,but not so hard as to dammage the hull...i used a 1 inch wide chisel blade that i sharpened to a good beveled chisel edge...( dont breath the carbon fiber dust, and make absolutly sure you use "epoxy" resin....the fiberglass resin will not stick.)look at rx951 post on this subject.

    Remove every hose in the area, remove the battery box and use a heat gun a a very sharp old/wide flat head screw driver. Heat up the dried up adhesize and from under partially screw in the bolt and hit them up with a hammer, with the flat head shart screw driver use it like a spatula, becareful not to damage the SMC.

    I used that method, except I used a 17 dollar small butane torch from Home Depot. Worked as advertised.

    Thanx for the quick respoces. I got "hit it hard...but not too hard"

    I was hoping to remove the green before I hit the bolts to brake the 5200.

    I got 5.8oz carbon fiber and TAP marine epoxy w/ fast part-B because I can't be sure the garage will be at +60*. I've read rx's post about 12 times. It's full of good info.

    I hate to swim against the current but YOU CAN NOT BEAT THE R&D Inlet Reinforcement Kit . There are a couple of ski's with cracked tunnels because the home made reinforcement was not strong enough. You just can not go wrong with the R&D C/F reinforcement piece.
