I fly remote control airplanes, and sometimes we have to pull the oil out of balsa. A trick that we used is K2R Spot lifter. Spray the oil soaked wood with the spot lifter and let it slowly draw out the oil in the wood. The longer it sits, the more time it has to pull out the oil. Brush off the now oil soaked and spot lifter and repeat as necessary. When the spot lifter remains white and dry, all of the oil in the wood will be removed. This system works really well, and it should work on your oil soaked wood. You might be able to get a can of this in your pharmacy.
caerleon9176 - 6 years ago
Plywood is hygroscopic, so if you want to remove the diesel - the only method I know of is to burn it, as in destroying totally. Get a thin sheet of ply, cover over the area, prime and paint or cut it out and replace. Sorry!
Jeff Griglack
Jeff Griglack - 6 years ago
The sander looks great, but $450. Yow! I think I'll stick with what I have. Same with the vacuum.
About the diesel soaked plywood, if you paint it and the paint doesn't stick, the insulation will not adhere either. I don't know how to get diesel out of the plywood. I would probably cut out the plywood and replace it, at least the section with the diesel.

Glenn Segrest
Glenn Segrest - 6 years ago
Mads, I wonder how that new vac works with your router. Try removal of a thin layer of the ply until you remove the diesel soaked layer(s). I know the other side is done so tearing it all out seems terror-able idea. So router and then glue in a new section, fill and paint. I believe you could layer a few blankets on the cockpit sole now that the boom tent is up and turn on some heat inside the engine compartment. This with blankets along the sides of the port and starboard aft cabins as well as covering up the sail-drive hole should raise the temp enough to do epoxy work in there. In case you don't want to wait until spring to continue.

my guess is most, or the majority, of the diesel sat on the surface and that is what got in the sanding paper the easiest, and the rest of the discoloration (stained) after having been sanded to the raw wood may still yet accept the primer, but that is going to be a bare raw eye decision you have to call for yourself. Do you think bleaching or an acetone based product will take out the petroleum oils if it appears to run deep into the grains of the wood?

Sanding Sponges, come in various grits, has 4 sides with 90 degree angles for corners, and are a lot easyer on the hands and fingers to use than just a plain sheet of sanding paper, helps make sanding go faster. It is a sponge with adhered sanding surfaces.

Regarding your diesel staining issue, if you seal the area with several coats of a shellac based primer paint , it will offer you a good surface to apply your next layers of primer and finish coat. Shellac is what is called a can-cover-anything paint. It will also seal in any odours from the offending surface, but 'heck' its your engine compartment so its going to smell of something. good luck.

I have cleaned diesel stains with acetone. Every day i gave it a good brush and let it vaporize. Repeat for couple days and diesel stain be gone... finish cleaning with warm water and detergent. As to the wood piece, do not remove it. Use epoxy to fill in missing part.

Automotive brake cleaning solvent works well on pulling out diesel,spray it heavy and have it drain onto a rag, soak and dry several times, don't saturate it all at once. The fumes are real bad, you need a vapor rated respirator and a good fan by the rudder post. I used this stuff many times, I once had spilled a gallon of diesel on the carpet in my house, when I was done you could not tell. Which reminds me, dry cleaning solvent would work too. Also, test it on a piece of scrap fiberglass to see if attacks resin.

To remove diesel from the plywood, buy a thin piece of plywood like a 1/4 inch or 4-5 mil piece then cover it up... :)
Sailing Luana Cordelia
Sailing Luana Cordelia - 6 years ago
Thanks for the new vid. Good luck Mads, diesel... I feel for ya!

All I can think is route it out shallow and epoxy veneer back in. Marine ply wood shouldn't be effected past the first layer due to the glue. I've not had luck covering oil on anything. I cant think wood would be more friendly here.

Also not friendly on paint is spray tack... that stuff will peel paint. So be careful if you are spray tacking the sound proofing in.

Hi Mads, (again)About the 2 different videos, I have had no problem on my Windows 7 laptop.About your rusty steering bits, hmmm the clamp is solid but I suspect the arm off the side is welded onto the clamp, rusty and unsafe weld.Replace it all with 316 SS or Silicon Bronze. save yourself from the breakage later.So when you redesign it, put in some fillets or have the arm full width of the clamp, then taper it to the bearing rodend portion of the arm - essentially a long tapered arm.Cheers, Paul

getting diesel out of plywood:

remove plywood from boat
try to air dry it with warm air
soak in petrol for around 18 hours
with a lighted match, toss onto plywood and run
johnnyohness - 6 years ago
You may want to investigate cedar shield made by cedercide. It soaks into the wood and pushes out moisture. Maybe it will push out the diesel?
johnnyohness - 6 years ago
As for the wood in your boat, I doubt that it will ever hold paint, but there may be a bright side to this. The diesel oil, stinky as it may be, could act as a preservative and prevent the wood from rotting.

Good Luck,

Mads over here in the states we have a powder compound that is used for cleaning up oil spills from the driveway to industrial spills. I have used it on concrete but never wood it removes soaked in oil by an oil eating bacteria. Might be worth a shot to contact them and see if it would be safe for wood.

I have used it with excent results in just a few weeks just not on wood

I think there is a consensus the only way to remove diesel out of plywood is set it on fire. The best way to approach it is to replace the piece. that way the OCD won't itch latter!!! :-)
fritzonvespa - 6 years ago
Hi Mads! Great job on the videos. For that small area of rot in the ply, have you considered cutting the ply back past the rot area across the front of the shelf ( parallel to the front edge ), and screwing /epoxy a solid timber member across the face ? Looks like you may need to remove about 30mm....replace with 30mm x 60mm timber for a stronger front edge that would look pretty spiffy!.....if you have a 10mm lip to the top, it would also stop dust/rust/crap from dropping onto the tank and engine area..... extra spiffy !! :-)

I can't see any reason why the rudder mechanism should be carbon steel. Carbon steel doesn't pit and crevice corrode like stainless where you get localised corrosion - hence exhausts are best in ferritic stainless which doesn't pit and crevice either. Carbon steel will contaminate stainless with iron rich particles which corrode the stainless so always use stainless wire brushes on stainless and use a pickle and passivating cleaner. Can probably get away with painting the carbon steel but contact between the two isn't ideal - at least you can inspect it though.

Hit it with some acetone give it a scrub and through primer on it. The acetone wont clean the plywood very deep, but it will get it good enough for the paint to hold. Cover it with the insulation, and its all good. Also I read a comment that said to use some stainless behind your new filter set up and that seems like a pretty good idea. That my 2 cents.

I wouldn't worry about removing residual diesel from the plywood - just remove the contaminated piece & replace it. Why? If paint won't stick to it, adhesives for insulation won't either. You'll end up having to do something about that after the engine's back in place & in your way. For whatever it's worth, you're going to far with this project to just overlook something like that & leave it.

I would just replace the plywood by cutting the affected area out and putting in a patch. I like to cut bad sections out using a jig saw with the blade set at a 45 degree angle. The patch edge also needs to be cut at a 45 degree angle so the two pieces with blend together seamlessly. Use a little thickened epoxy to adhere the two pieces, give the entire area a couple of coats of un-thickened epoxy, paint and call it a day.

It has been great watching you restore your boat. I am getting ready to start on a similar adventure and have learned quite a few tricks from you. When we get our boats in the water, and find ourselves in the same Caribbean anchorage, the drinks are on me. Cheers!

Always entertaining and worthwhile watching :-)))
Regarding the plywood, think the diesel has affected the structure of the wood in at the least the outer/upper ply(s) hence the sanding residue - when I had a similar issue in the engine bay of my boat I marked the affected area in a rectangle and used a broad chisel to lift the outer 3mm or so of plys that came away easily, then cut and epoxied in a thin piece of ply and then knocked the surface back with a belt sander. Was pretty quick and I also wasn't too worried about surface perfection because I also just wanted to paint it to give a clean/smooth surface for the self adhesive sound deadening foam that went on top.

Mads, I'm convinced that your favorite part of all of this is the cleaning.  You just seem to light up when you get to vacuum and clean.  To be fair, I think I must also have a secret cleaner inside of me, as I experience a very strong sense of "Ahhhh, that's better!" when see the finished product.  It feels very good to see Athena's 'under parts' go from dusty/grimy to "spiffy."  Now that I'm all worked up, I think I might go clean the bathroom!  Love your videos!

I would soak the area with naptha and then use Pig Mat to absorb both the naptha and diesel back out.
It's amazing stuff for absorbing oils.
Pig Mat comes in two types. One that will absorb only oil base liquids but not water and another that absorbs water base chemical but not oil.
Very handy to have on hand.

My opinion diesel will not hut the plywood. You can get paint to adhere to the plywood by painting shellac over the affected area. I have done this in the past to stop the diesel from bleeding through the paint.

Have no good advice about diesel in wood. Maybe try sealing it first with clear epoxy, and then paint over that? Honestly, it would probably take another 25 years of time to separate and degrade, so.... who cares? Sometimes you have to capitulate on things like this, when you know you can get a lot of time out of it. Regarding the low grade steel, seriously who puts that in a boat designed to go to a (salty) sea? I am thinking that goes on the replacement list. Lastly, just one item of safety, especially for hand sanding I would have a mask on..... You have no idea what's in that paint. Otherwise great product review and a good overview of what us older boat people already know. They didn't build them to take them apart again... :)

Best way to remove diesel from plywood is fire. hehehe Naw man just replace it, or cover it up. Best your going to do is remove the surface saturation, the the deeper stuff will find it's way out again. Years ago we used to mix diesel with tar to put on fence posts (the part that goes in the ground) to keep it from rotting out. Diesel sucks the tar right into the wood.
BUT, what you could do is drill into the ply (several places) and see how far the saturation is. If not too deep, you could rout it out and epoxy fill the void. If really deep, rout out, fill with a thin piece of ply and epoxy.

The long term permanent solution to the problem of diesel saturated ply is to cut it out and replace it. The long term problem is that if the plywood really is saturated, eventually the diesel will cause the ply to delaminate. If you just don’t want to deal with the extra work of remove and replace, then I would try a (non flammable) degreaser of some type (here in the USA I have used a product called TSP with moderate success). After removing as much as I could that way, I’d epoxy over the area. This may extend the life of the board a bit, but I must also say I am not optimistic in your case because that plywood is going to be exposed to heat from the motor, which may serve to accelerate delamination.

For my own peace of mind, I must caution you against using a flammable degreaser in an enclosed space like that. A concentration of fumes can lead to a spontaneous flash fire, which, based on personal experience, would be a very, very bad thing.

Just a note about wet and dry vacuums from had won experience - I now only use them for one or the other. If you use them fine particle collection and then use them for sucking up water it can cause real problems with the motors if this is something you do regularly. Having gone through 4 wet and dry vacuums in around 18 months I then bought 2 (1 for each job) and have not had a problem in over 2 years. Buy a cheap wet and dry machine for 'water sucking' duties, and get years of duty from that lovely new vacuum!

on the ferrous steel steering arm--my suggestion is for you to locate a shop with a Glass Bead Blast cabinet. I recently retired from an Apparatus Repair Shop(large motors, gens and transformers)--the only reason I stayed there for 43 years was that we had Bead Blaster at our convenience. If you have not experienced such a tool I guarantee you will be very impressed. This is a situation where you might have a bottle of Whiskey/Vodka or? for a bit of barter. Mark and photo those attached cables. When the arm has been cleaned, apply something like Zinc Chromate primer,,then your epoxy primer and you're good to go! For removing the diesel from the wood, I have had good luck with a product we in America call "Wisk", its for laundry and is a liquid----if you cannot find that I would try "Dawn" dish washing detergent----this has many uses and a Must-Have for a DIY repair person. Love that new vacuum and sander--have been using a vacuum-sander assy for over 20yrs. Good Luck-------Mikey

The only thing I know of for taking care of the diesel would be Kilz. You can get it as a spray or gallon can. Make sure not to get their water based one. The normal stuff is an oil based primer that is purpose built for covering stains and odors. I work as a maintenance tech at an apartment complex. We will sometimes get leaks from our fire sprinkler system which contains propylene glycol. It is pretty nasty stuff as far as seeping through the paint so we have to do a ton of coats with the stuff. It dries in about 15-20 minutes so it is not that bad. Just make sure to have good ventilation and a respirator, it is pretty strong stuff. I'd say to do about 5-10 coats of that, then go with your primer on top, then paint it. Will be golden after that. Also, if you accidentally get it on something use a product called Xylene. It is a medium strength solvent that will get it off pretty quick. I've been able to get Kilz off of hardwood floors with that stuff. I have also seen it under the name Xylol and Dimethylbenzene.

Great job as always, now I don't know a trick on how to removing diesel from a painter I can give you a trick on how to paint.
If you thin your paint it will penetrate into the wood better, even if the paint is thin use the proper thinner and thin it some more, we have all painted a piece of wood and the end grain needed a second coat to look the same as the rest of the wood, its pretty much the same, you thin it, it will "soak" in like a sponge. You will have to coat it many times to get the same look, but it should give you a long lasting job.

utz48 - 6 years ago
Best and safest way is to replace the wood, but diesel fuel will begin it vaporize between 52C and 96C. So in theory you could use your heating pad and vacuum to try and extract some of it. But it increases the risk of fire since the hydrocarbon vapors are combustible, probably unlikely in the concentrations you’ll get but never the less it’s still a risk. Personally I’d sand it as best I could then paint over it if you’re not concerned with the possibility of poor paint adhesion since you’re covering with sound deadening materials anyway. Good luck I enjoy your videos. -Brian

The mild steel arm off your rudder stock should be made from 316 ss, the reason yours is mild steel is cost. I install a fair amount of autopilots and allways use stainless. There normally difficult to get to and it's rare that there inspected, so stainless is a good material for the application, also you can be sure there is no interaction with the stainless rudder stock. Hope it helps.

The standard DEGREASER used by painters forever is TSP or TRISODIUM PHOSPHATE. Sold in the US by Savogran Company at home centers and paint/hardware stores. We used to use it to scrub the floor in an auto shop and I used it for decades for the nastiest pre-paint cleaning jobs like years of cooking grease on kitchen walls. If this doesn't get the diesel off the plywood I doubt anything else will either. Use gloves.

Fire works to get fuels out of wood.
Work really well.
Granted it'd burn the wood as well, but you'd be sure and certain it is all out.
Seriously, I doubt you will get much diesel out of the wood. If it isn't replaced, it will pretty much stay there. If it isn't causing a smell issue, or structural issues, I'd not worry overmuch and just cover it with sound and heat insulation. iirc you mentioned you were relocating the filter system, right? Maybe a "wash" of very thin oil based paint would cover it over, but I don't think that would work well with your other primer.
Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

You could try heating the diesel soaked panel with hot air, then immediately applying engine degreaser which will draw the degreaser into the pores of the wood as it cools over night, then thoroughly flush with hot water to remove the degreaser and diesel that it carries. Acetone works well to dilute petroleum, however if the acetone is not removed in a liquid state, it vaporizes leaving the petroleum product behind. A good trick when painting is to preheat the areas to be painted which drives out the moisture in the substrate, and immediately paint while still warm, and the paint will be drawn in as it cools instead of merely covering the surface it will bond better. This strategy also works well with slow set epoxy.

Use a blowtorch or a hot air gun paint stripper on the diesel contaminated plywood. It will evaporate it so you can then get a good bond with the primer.
There is not enough diesel in there to ignite so just heat the wood until it begins to brown.

Please let me know your thoughts.Also, how did you get Bosch to sponsor your new tools? Did you contact them and ask or did they some how find you? BTW I have two Bosch sanders that I am very please with as well.

If someone has a magical way to get diesel out of plywood I'd like to know it too. Just cut it out. On that vacuum, the autostart is a great feature. What I am wondering about is the life and cost of the filters.

Kudos to Bosch for sending you that spiffy sander.  as for the stain this shellack based product will cover oil based stains & all sorts of other stains too. not super expensive & can be given several coats in pretty short order. dries super quick, but ruins brushes so use a 'disposable'

Acetone will remove diesel and every other oil or grease. Use it a lot . Start it with brush from upper part , 2 - 3 inches above the stain area . - Don't pioson yourself - good ventilation .
........... And btw. - remove all rusty metals from your boat. Rust weaken a fiberglass and even cause decomposition. You are doing very good job , so far.

It highly unlikely you will be able to 'remove' the diesel from the plywood. You can however 'seal it in' to get a good paint surface to bond. As others have mentioned if the paint doesn't bond, the insulation glued to it will not bond either.. Look into this product. I've used it with great success. It may also be a viable product to use, along with their wood restore product to fix up that plywood corner should you elect to not remove the rudder shaft.

Awesome video. I want to run out and buy a Bosch vacuum like that now as well as the turbo-encabulator sander. I should have done this 2 years ago when I started my own refit instead of the crappy little Ryobi and using the Rigid wet-vac I already had. It would have saved a lot of work. I kick myself for being cheap then, and now it is too late since we are just a few months from untying the lines and that is too much equipment to take along on the boat.

As for the diesel in the wood, as others have suggested there is likely a primer solution that has been formulated just for this very issue. Now is the time to talk to your local marine paint representative and expert. They will likely have a product they can recommend which will be able to prime the oily plywood and encapsulate it while sticking well without peeling. Then you can cover that with another primer such as 2-part epoxy before using whatever it is you plan on using for your final coat here in the engine room. I'm sure you are not the first person to need to paint oily plywood on a boat so an easy primer solution is likely to be on the market.

Giving free product advise and support is the job of these higher-up paint representatives to help with these questions. Professional painters even use this resource when they have questions or issues themselves. Maybe you might even make a contact there, who might be interested in working out another sponsorship deal with Sail Life. That would be awesome. Once you get one real sponsorship deal like the one from Bosch the ice has been broken and other companies will then take you more seriously when considering sponsoring you too. You have a great vlog with a ton of active subscribers. You richly deserve to reap all the benefits of your hard work and dedication here and now.

Finally, that plywood rot doesn't look too bad and seems to be localized in that small corner. I personally would probably just cut it back to good wood, taper it out, and then fiberglass it back to rebuild and reinforce the shelf area and tab it back in securely. It surely will be much easier and faster than trying to replace the whole piece, and it will be a stronger repair than it was when new. Once it is fared in and everything is painted it will be invisible and better than new.
Kraals - 6 years ago
While this is not a standard boat process the principle is the same.  I have used this process and it works very well.  In the video he mentions it is a messy, smelly process.  Well yes and no.  Acetone is acetone, the whiting compound does not smell.  It may take more than one application to achieve the result you desire, but it's easy and goes quickly.  Good luck.
SV Barry Duckworth
SV Barry Duckworth - 6 years ago
It sounds like a good workable solution, maybe combined with a primer formulated to securely cover any diesel that doesn't draw all the way out of the wood fibers. As mentioned by others there is a product called Killz here in the US that I've used with great success in the past. I am sure there is something in Denmark that is similar.
Kraals - 6 years ago
The acetone causes the oil to migrate out of the wood fibers and the whiting powder is highly absorbent and pulls the acetone containing the oil to the surface.  The acetone evaporates quickly leaving the dry powder on the surface.  A few minutes later you brush the oil soaked whiting powder away and viola'  I've used this a couple of times.  It works.
SV Barry Duckworth
SV Barry Duckworth - 6 years ago
Acetone should help a lot all by itself. I have never used this whiting compound but I did use straight oxalic acid (wood bleach) on my sole and it did a very good job of getting out stains from diesel and other things that were spilled onto the sole and got past whatever urethane or epoxy coating Hallberg-Rassy originally used where it got scratched or penetrated at dents in the wood.

Bosch and Hilti are really the two major brands that are seen everywhere in the serious commercial construction trades here in the US, other than Milwaukee (Techtronic Industries owned) and a bit of DeWalt (Stanley/Black & Decker owned) There are a few others like Makita but that seems to have peaked 10 or so years ago. Their early battery drills were popular back when they first came out, along with the Panasonic (Matsushita) battery drills -but not seen as much any more around here.

I prefer Bosch because of the ability to find spare parts easily and not too expensively. They last fairly well in production use and don't just fall apart. I could easily be a fanboy although I'm too cheap to buy the high-quality tools when the low-grade stuff works OK and I'm not using it that heavily in personal home/boat use.
manfred schmalbach

I have to buy my (blue) Bosch products and I am an openly frenetic fanboy, too.
Most impressive: I still could get ANY spare part for my more than 30 year old GST 85 PE during a recent rebuild; they offer single screws in OEM quality ... That's the way You do business: for people like me, 100 bucks more for a new one isn't important as long as I know I could keep it going strong for decades with this sort of spare part policy. Not even Makita has it to that extend. So: two options to buy a keeper, with Bosch (blue = professional) one of them - don't think twice, no matter what price. (End fan rant)

Hi Mads, I'm no professional boat guy by anymeans, but I think your epoxy primer will cover/seal any issues with the plywood by the diesel filter. as long as there isn't any staining on the opposite side of the plywood I wouldn't worry about it. very cool to have a company reward a customer who is using their tools.

I can't think of a way to totally remove diesel from wood. You may be able to reduce it but since you have a vertical surface that would be really tough. I'd either leave it alone, primer /paint and wait to see how it works, or replace the effected wood.

I wonder if cutting out a few sections with a large hole saw and replacing them with new material would retain the structural strength component of that bulkhead?
Thomas D Harrell

Hi Mads, As usual another great video.
There is so much to be learned from the disassembly of a boat.
There is nothing that will remove diesel from wood without destroying the wood. Wasted effort.
I would like to ask about methods.
Please don't take as a derogatory it is not. It is understood it is a choice.
Would it have been easier to just gut the interior of the boat and rebuild from scratch?
just in a labor sense. I am sure it would be more expensive because nothing is saved.
But in what you have when finished it would all be new. Which is good and bad depending on sentimentality or originality.
Nothing of the original would remain.

Is there a functional equivalent to the word "ghetto" in Danish ?

Stock up on some extra filters for your vacuum. I don't think you will be sanding any drywall compound or something that makes extremely fine dust, but you might want to buy one HEPA filter anyway.

You need a sanding adapter for your multi-tool ! They work very well and will eliminate a lot of hand sanding.

I know it is not your "style", but if the only part of that plywood that is rotting is that one spot, cut it out and make a patch. If you can get a 45° cut on the part you are removing and make a reasonable close cut on the plug including the bevel, you can just epoxy it in place and save a lot of time.

Removing oil from wood - FULLERS EARTH, a talcum like powder has removed freshly spilled engine oil from a freshly sanded teak deck for me. 100% removal, no shadow or any other remaining sign. I do not know what it would do on long term impregnation such as you have. The technique on my deck was to sprinkle it on, allow a short time to observe it darken as it absorbs the oil and then vacuum it off. It would be tricky on a vertical surface.

I am not convinced that it is practical or realistically possible to get the diesel to leave the plywood.

However I have no clue what you might use to fix (glue?) the sound insulation in place if the wood base is "contaminated" with something like diesel.

jeremyrainman - 6 years ago
Mads, why can't you just epoxy a thin veneer of plywood over the diesel-stained portion? There are epoxies that will set in the presence of diesel IIRC. That will give you a clean surface to paint, and won't add too much to the thickness.

Also, with rotten plywood, if you don't care about what it looks like, you can basically inject thinned epoxy into it, rather than tearing it up. You just drill some small holes in the wood you want to treat, mix some epoxy, thin it with some acetone, draw it into a disposable needle and quickly inject it into the wood. It can get messy, but it will also structurally save wood that is rotting and essentially turn it into the strength of epoxied fiberboard (which isn't bad). For best results, inject straight acetone into the wood first, to make sure it soaks in well.
jeremyrainman - 6 years ago
acetone injections will help dry out the wet+rotten plywood.
Mrgwa - 6 years ago
This would work for a rotten but dry plywood. I'd be worried when the plywood is wet.

While I know there are epoxies that will set in the presence of diesel, meaning the diesel won't dilute the mix, I'm not clear those same epoxies will adhere to something soaked in diesel.

Hi Mads, we remove hydraulic fluid from matt paint finishes by mixing talc with white spirit and then brushing it on the the affected area. The white spirit will dissolve the oil and it will be absorbed into the talc as the white spirit evaporates. Other solvents may also work, but choose something that evaporates slowly to allow it to do its job, once dry the talc can then be vacuumed up with your spiffy new Bosch vacuum cleaner!
Dave O
Dave O - 6 years ago
Yep - have to get a lighter spirit to dissolve the heavier one.  Acetone, Toluene, etc. are available in the USA.  Mads - is the plywood discolored, or does it smell like diesel?  If there is just some discoloration, you might think about trying some oil based stain blocking primer prior to painting.  If it smells bad, then you can go about an attempt at leaching the diesel out of the plywood.  If it doesn't come out easily, you may end up needing to replace it, or maybe veneering a layer on top that you could then seal and encapsulate the smell.

But I can watch on my phone, ha. I had a similar problem with trim (it wasn't plywood tho) in my Trimaran that had been soaked in diesel. We used a steam wand to heat and lift the oil from the wood continuously wiping with very clean cloth followed by a wipe with Naphtha solvent and repeated this process a dozen or so times. I don't feel we ever got it all out because you could still see discoloration. It has however held the spar varnish now for 8 years and counting with no flaking or peeling of any kind.

Sorry, I've never heard of any way to remove diesel from plywood that doesn't involve destroying the plywood. Typically we "cook" the diesel out of soil when we replace the underground tanks at filling stations. However, this amount of heat would also delaminate the plywood and turn the veneer into charcoal.

I'd talk to your paint supplier and enquire as to a chemical method of getting the primer to adhere. I'm sure they've got some tricks that they employ.

Great video and a  thumbs up to Bosch, may I make a suggestion to place a cover over the hole left by the sail drive to avoid any birds deciding they have found a great nesting area (-:

Nice video! Finally you get a Wet 'n Dry vacuum. My life turned to the better, when I got my MIRKA sander! A sander you can put on a Wet 'n Dry is sort of priceless. Greetings from Norway.

I believe it's a competition between advertisers They all try to make the best Tv commercial. I guess the winner gets a big bowl instead of a cup ;-))

Hey mads ,replace the plywood soaked in diesel then seal it up with epoxy coating ,paint,soundproofing .
WreckDiver99 - 6 years ago
One thing to be aware of. If the paint does peel from that plywood anything adhered to that paint will peel as well...which means...yea, you're sound dampening will let go as well....
WreckDiver99 - 6 years ago
Good idea..A 6mm thick piece of ply bonded to that ply might work. Believe me though...those are some tight quarters. 6mm might be too much (Mads will know best). I just know from the experience on my boat that I literally have 6mm in many places of pure clearance, and adding 6mm would eliminate that clearance. Another thought...a layer or two of fiberglass...not sure if that will bond through the diesel though.

Yea that was my thought. Think I would investigate gluing or mechanically fastening a thin sheet of wood to that area before painting. As far as the rotten plywood by the rudder post if the wood is sound where it meets with the vertical plywood I would just add some horizontal pieces to the rotten area after treating the rotten area with stop rot. No need to remove that entire piece of wood. Just reinforce that end.
