you will likely need some solvent, strong enough to wet out the gelcoat/bulldog coat, not so strong to disturb the resin/layup...
start with the least aggressive and change the rags often...if it is thick enough, I have scraped it with a blunt metal blade and then used the solvent...
Alcohols are the least aggressive solvents.
• Petroleum solvents (kerosene, naptha, mineral spirits, turpentine, Xylol, Toluol) and
chlorinated solvents are moderately aggressive.
• Ketones, esters and paint removers are very aggressive to paints. When using them,
expect to at least see a dulling to the finish.
best of luck
