Removal of Vinyl Adhesive

Any advice on how to remove the ugly discolored vinyl adhesive from our Novurania RIB? We unknowingly were over zealous when spreading the adhesive to apply the "numbers." It was clear going on, but now as you can see, it is brown. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much,

Without knowing the adhesive it is tough to say what to use and whether it would have a damaging effect on the PVC/Hypalon of the dinghy. I would first suggest a heat gun and scaper to see if the glue can be softened and removed. Alternatively, you may just wish to cover the whole thing up with a piece of white vinyl cut to size and glue new numbers to that.

You could also try goo-gone, which removes a lot of common adhesives.

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 would wait until the season was over or whwn I was ashore for extended time and call the maker. Surely this has happen before and they would hopefully have a solution. They may save you another problem.

Yep, I agree, cute pup

You might try 3M adhesive remover. It's mostly naptha (from the smell) which won't hurt hypalon or PVC. I think WM carries it, but I'd look for an auto body paint supply house first. They'll be cheaper than Worst Marine.
