I’ve found lots of info on how to apply decals and stickers to these kayaks, but how do you get them off?

I’ve got a couple of decals and an old boat inspection sticker (all applied by a previous owner) that I’d really like to remove. I’ve tried carefully peeling them but they’re stuck on way too well. On any other substrate I’d use heat but I’m worried about damaging the hull. If I’m careful will this work, or is there another method?

Automotive bug/tar remover or WD40 should work. Just let it soak for a while.

I’m going to try one of these next time, worth a shot.
