Other than a pressure washer, how can I get silicone caulk off of my gelcoat without damaging it. Any great ideas? Thanks, Shay

Boat Life makes a product called Release. I have used it and it works very well.

the best product I have found is by 3M, general adheasive remover(?) I used a little of that and a worn out dish scrub pad, worked great in allmost all apps.If you get some real nasty crap you can use a very fine wire brush (toothbrush size) to get the tuff stuff---be carefull not to go too hard with one of those.It will leave a gray smudge that you can clean up right away with some soapy combo.I would only use this on your deck area not on your hull. good luck

Much thanks for the replies. I will try the 3M product and see what happens.
