We had that same problem and found an Orange residue removal product that was fairly good, but that was after trying acetone and everything else. Ultimately what happened was after the winter it sort of dried up and then came off pretty easily. It was an absolute bitch and we spent hours working on it, you have me condolences!

Try WD40, before anything stronger. Its good for much cleaning.

WD-30 should take care of your issue. Be a little patient as to let it work in some. WD has almost never failed me and is environmentally friendly. Cheers

I second WD40. It works well for just about any tape adhesive and many thing made from petroleum distillates. I recently used it to remove the tape residue from duct tape. It may require a little rubbing and several applications.

I have yet to harm paint with WD40 but I have never tried it with hull paint. You might want to try it first on an inconspicuous area, say, under the transom by the rudder.

please keep in mind many of these things are really hard on gel coat such as goof off, it will probably just melt gel coat and most of all these products will destroy paint so like it says in the book of words...test a small area and proceed with caution! WD 40 sometimes works but wouldn't even faze the residue we had.
