In Topic: Removing Hydro-Turf

02 February 2016 - 05:36 PM

I am in the middle of removing mine right now on a Melges 24.  I am using an Oscillating Saw with a flat blade.  It allows me to take up big chunks at a time and then I go back and hand scrape with a 4" razor blade.  Remove residual glue of MEK and then sand smooth.  


This my third time in 7 years to replace the hydroturf.  the first 2 times i did it by hand with a putty knife and a 2" razor blade.  That sucked.  



I've also done it multiple times and have used these same techniques.
