A while back I used the product "Aqua-Strip" to remove some old painted hull stripes - worked fairly well and as a stripper is safe for gelcoat. Coincidentally I found it was quite willing to soften and loosen vinyl decals as well... unfortunately I had not planned on that part

So that may be another option to try.
