Heres another idea for ya pb, Go to home Depot or what ever hardware store is close by and buy some piano wire in a super thin gauge. You can slip it in between the tip and the transome and work around the edges cutting and working your way through the silicone. Should work out good!

Putty knife and a straight screw driver and twist if you take your time it works with no damage

The little cheap disposable razor knifes. The are about 1/4" tall and 4-5" long when extended. The kind that have the segments that break off to keep a sharp tip. They bend along way before the segments break. If you are careful you can hold the blade flat against the hull bend it a little with pressure and slice right around the pipe give it a tap and and it will pop right out. Works great but not for the faint of heart.

Shoot, the piano wire idea is a good one. I have to give it a try next time. Thanks Wally.

Thumbs up

Sometimes the piano wire trick works good with deck hatches too if you can snake it through. Its like takeing the windshield out of a car then!

Take a razor knife and scribe around the outside of it and that should keep your gel coat in tackt.

Hey Wally,
Nice idea. I will for sure get these things off. Now I need to replace them. Anyone have a line on 4" stainless steel slanted tips w/ internal flappers.

if you have acess from inside the boat,use wooden blocks and a bottle jack to slowly press the tips out.As you pump the jack,ease a blade into the stretched sealer and cut them free.Works sweet evey time.
