Can anyone offer a good way to get rid of plastic wood? Or maybe it's epoxy? - the canoe was fiber-glassed at one point. A previous restorer wannabe use lots of plastic wood or epoxy on this 1938 Otca, presumably done to seal the cracks between the planking. It's sort of yellow in color. I just finished the 1st round of stripping the varnish and hoped that this stuff would start flaking off - but no luck. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it? Heat maybe?
