WD40 takes off the sticker residue... this is what Formula recommends for their boats, when you take off the shrink wrap tape.

It's called a "Stripe off" wheel. I used one of those, along with a can of the 3M adhesive remover on my Dad's boat last year.

Took about 100 feet of 1" stripe off with it. Worked great.

Thanks all. I'll give the WD40 a shot first and see if that does it.
