Block off removal
Alright, I know someone out there has done this. How the heck do you remove block offs that have been sealed with 3M 5200? I've cut all around the outside of the block off but its not budging. I've tried jacking up the back of the ski using the block off and it didn't move. Is the some trick to this?

I use a putty knife and a hammer straight up from the bottom. Knock the sharp corners off the putty knife with some sand paper of a file so it won't gouge the gel coat. I have not used the 3M 5200. I use ultra black permatex or right stuff. Not sure if this will help you but might be worth a try.

I can answer that - "YES, a heat gun really helps"! Thanks to Scotty and Waterfire for the advice. I had it off in 15 minutes. A word of advice, you can use too much heat - I caused a couple of bubbles in the gel coat. Oh well, live and learn.

5200 is bad a@@ stuff.
Heat and putty knife are it.
The stuff seals under water
Or a side mirror broken off at base by a drunk who thought it didn't need to be in there way.
Had to remove broken Radio Antenna on side boat; Heat gun makes it go away.
