SailorMitch will become famous soon enough
Two years ago I bought a Pearson 33-2 and removed the old name that had been on the boat for 15 years -- both port and starboard sides also. I used rubbing compound of varying grits, acetone, everything I could think of. Once I had it looking as good as I thought I could, I applied the new name right over both places where the old one had been. That was 2 years ago and now you can only notice the remnants of the old name if you are literally standing right next to the boat. People would never know I had changed the name unless I point it out to them now.
