My new Seadek pad finally arrived today 10 weeks! It seems like it is going to be easy to remove the old hard rubber swim platform. I started pulling up the corner and started pulling, only leaving behind some adhesive. Just wondering what I can use to easily remove the old adhesive and won’t damage the gel coat?

I would think goop-off or something would take care of it.'08 Mobius LS

Yup goop off, bug removal, mild solvents, wax and buffer will all remove it. just don't use anything to abrasive or to strong like gasoline because it can damage the gell on the deck or the back of the boat if it gets on it.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

Acetone will remove adhesive really well. I used it to remove the adhesive left by the numbers on my old boat.1991 Cobia Monte Carlo 188E (Sold)

Re: How to Remove Old Adhesive From Swim Platform
I have done 2 platforms using mineral sprits. Soaked the adhedive for about 15 minutes , then scrapped it with a plastic putty blade.

My favorite is 3m adhesive remover. It works well and is extremely safe.-Jake

I've done this four or five times.
I have tried all the above and I have found that gasoline and plenty of rags is the easiest and quickest.

Mineral spirits and 3M non scratching scouring pad seems to do the trick. I am installing a new Seadek pad that big had to wait ten weeks for.2007 Moomba Outback V
