Spent four hours yesterday removing a poorly applied (thankfully!) layer of fiberglass from my Morris Model A64 Type 1 17'. By the ease that it came off, I'd say the previous owner had used Polyester resin which I had been hoping for. A mild amount of heat from a heat gun did speed up the process further. But I was able to start a section and easily remove it. The bottom was pretty awesome - it literally came off from bow to stern in a piece about 18 inches wide. I strapped it down to a pair of 7 foot saw horses for stability during most of the process. So, my Morris project is officially underway and the inside stripping will be next - and I know that will be a lot of work, then, I'll have to find a good 'canvasser' to finish.
