      A while back you guys were talking about BVI charting ,I have done it 3 x so far.  first time was mornings on a Beneteau  32  second time a beneteau 36 , they sailed fine and i was impressed  but i was so old school i missed my wood down below  To much plastic for me !
      So i did research in the BVI for old school boat , I found a old Jeanneau 46 she must have been 30 years old. Sunsail I think ..  tons of pix and all wood. I was so impressed she handled that 5 foot chop in Francis Drake channel like smooth water . Later next day i went to the Bitter End  YC and up to that fuel dock and i came up to the fuel dock with in 6 inches and not touching.
      And when leaving next day  i raised sails in the anchorage and cast off the mooring and zigged my way out of the crowd.  My crew was freaking out. But i learned how to come with in 10 ft of another boat and be comfortable.  I did cause a stir !!!!!!  I was proud of that jeanneau .   10 days was not enough ....

      If you buy this 5200 remover  directly from the company  its 21.00  from west marine 37.00  for the 12 oz can.
      I have used this stuff for 5 years and i'll always have a can on hand.  It just works !   Lee Nicholas  Sabre 28/ Sandpiper and Morgan 384 Wind Rose . !

      There is a product made that is supposed to be for removing 5200 called "Debond." I think I still have some around, altho' I have never used it, so I don't know how well (or if) it works. See: http://www.debondcorp.com/products.htm   

      You might try to find it and see if it will work in your application.

      I'll look at my black trim rings and see if I can pry them off. Boat speed, wind speed and direction, and depth. I have installed previously p 70 pilot head, e7 mfd, radar and wheel autopilot. Work in progress.  Terrific sailing boat!

      I did this last winter.   I spent a lot of time on the coming at them from the back side too, but ultimately found that the silver trim rings on the outside in the cockpit either popped right off or unscrewed pretty easily.  What are you putting in their place?  I have 2 Raymarine i70s and a Raymarine i60 for the wind instrument.

      ugh I'm removing (trying to) my data marine instruments and replacing with ray marine - data marine are on my cockpit bulkhead - I've removed the retaining rings- looks like 4200 or 5200 was used in the first place. I'm fearing pounding from the rear to move them out will really do bad to the gel coat - advice on removing them would be appreciated!

      Thanks and regards
