Regarding your advice on chemical strippers for varnish (PS Advisor, August, 2012): I have had very good results using Sunnyside Corp.’s Back to Nature Ready-Strip. It contains no methylene chloride, is safe on fiberglass, cleans up with water, and is much less expensive than Franmar’s Soy Strip. It claims to be environmentally safe as well.

Thanks for the feedback. Practical Sailor tested Ready-Strip against Soy Strip and other chemical marine strippers in the November 2006 issue. While Soy Strip got the Best Choice pick, the significantly less expensive Ready-Strip was the Budget Buy.
