Thasnk All for your sggesttions. The bondo popped off using a large screwdriver and wood block for leverage and came off in one 4 foot long 1" thick chunk. Nice!!!

Most of the resin is coming off just with a razor blade with the edges rounded like Sailing dog recommended.

Will post new picture when job is done to show before and after. She already looks 100% better. The previous owner tried using a disc grinder though and has really damaged the gelcoat and cut into some of the fiberglass on the hatch. That will be another project.

Whew... thank goodness for environmental dirt and poor surface prep... prevented that stuff from sticking permanently. Glad to help. Looking forward to see the photos.

As for the PO... I'd recommend keel hauling on an old 45' full keel that hasn't had a bottom paint job done in a decade.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I just saw the pics and was about to ask if the cops got the blighter, was the worst case of malicious damage I have seen.

If there was dust and grime the drips will not adhere and pop off... and that looks like the case.

Not malicious damage, just incredible stupidity by the Previous Owner. No crime since he owned it at the time the defacement occurred.

I don't know what you're complaining about. Seems like the guy did a great job. Then again, my wife's always getting after me when I unload. She's always saying things like, "You didn't wipe properly, Sailhog! It looks like you just smeared it all over with your hand! That's disgusting!" I can't get her voice out of my head when I try to sleep at night...
