Peel Away & Stubborn Boat Name

Peel-away worked but it took a bit of elbow grease and a 3M paint removing pad. I was worried about it harming the gelcoat but its OK ...just that ugly yellow shadow where the letters were...which compound should remove. A marina guy told me I should put vinegar on it after to neutralize, then a full rinse. Its back to the boat for that.

I recently used the Home Depot product to remove some misapplied varnish on an older C&C38. I t states on the can that it won''t harm Gel Coat and it didn''t. Good Luck

OK, the painted old boat name is refusing to yield to Easy Off. Is the peel-away sold at Home Depot the next step? Is that the version of peel-away that won''t harm the gelcoat? Is that my next step?
