Default removing decals from fiberglass

Just bought a used boat that has 2 little decals on it that need to be removed. Are there any techniques you can share?

Thanks.

I was going topost a similar question. I did the heat gun thing and got the decals off but it left a residue. GooGone doesn't work in removing the residue....any suggestions?

3M makes an eraser you put on a drill. Forgot the technical name of it. That is what you need.

3M makes an adhesive remover, comes in a red spray can, Napa or any auto parts store carries it, bout 8 bucks, wont hurt gel, then wax as it will strip any off.
