sticker removal

Hello, Can any one tell me if there is any thing that can be used to remove the old boat registration stickers from my hull? I have about 5 of them on top of each other, and would like to remove them and put a new one on. Thanks, Don

To add to the list...Nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol.

When applying any of these things, use a clean cloth and let it soak onto the sticker for a minute or 2.

If they are like our state stickers, nothing will be absorbed, but a hair drier can soften the bottom layer of adhesive and you can scrape them off with a plastic (saves the fiberglass) scraper.

Try on the numbers, but they vary widely in composition.

3M Adhesive Remover. We use it in the boat yard for exactly this tons of other gooey removal stuff.

I have used stainless steel cleaner. Didn't hurt my fiberglass but label came right off.
