3M Adhesive remover is the best by far, maybe a bit pricey but it does the job and will not damage the gelcoat or metal, it can be used for many other jobs and well worth having in your maintenance box, can be found in most worthwhile chandlers shops.

WD40 every time!  If you can't fix it with WD40 it can't be fixed.

Just don't use it as a general lube on your boat for blocks travellers etc.

I used methylated spirits on an old laser where the previous owner had taped the gunnels.............lots of hard work using it and a strong cloth succeeded and it looks as good as new without any nasty scratching/marks etc
