How long would squid ink take to dry, on a boat deck? Is it possible it could remain tacky for a couple of days, if the weather was damp and foggy?

Thanks

How much squid ink? It can be thick, depending on how much squid ink was deposited, so yes I think it would be possible for it to still be sticky after several days.

Are you trying to leave the squid ink on the deck or remove it?

One more question: what would squid ink look like, sprayed onto a boat deck? That is, after hauling a Humboldt aboard.

Big globs? Spatter? Pool?

Thanks
