Default Marine Mat, round 2.

Thanks to a neighborhood cat and my lovely wife I got a new set of mats for the boat for Christmas.

The first install was easy. I'm not looking forward to the removal on this one. Anyone remove a set of mats before?

Their advice is slow and steady. Then 3m adhesive remover.

You weren't clear as to whether it was your wife, or your neighborhood cat who soiled your old mats.

Yes i guess you're right. The cat scratched the shit out of my current mats and my wife got me a new set.

My next gift will be the cat shot. I'll see if I can get my daughter on that.

He’s probably still removing it a year later.

Heat helps, leave in sun for a while, then heat gun, slow pull. Two main types of adhesive, one is a thin film with adhesive both sides, other is just a layer of adhesive without film. Way easier if can get to release clean from deck. When residue stays on deck the solvent adhesive removers tend to ball it up like boogers. Lots of rubbing and towels/solvent.

Yes, lots of rubbing, towels, and solvent! After getting the hang of it it was "that" bad but I dont want to do it on a regular basis. The new set is on.
