    That job can be tough, as you have to go easy to avoid damage to the block offs and the hull.

    I used a large putty knife, a razor blade and a screwdriver. Call me when you get a chance

    Patients.
    Several screw drivers to pry off.
    Pita to get off without scarring gel coat.
    They will easily bend if not careful.

    I haven't removed mines yet to install my exhaust, but I figured heating would also help in trying to pry off the block off the hull while also using a razor blade to cut the sealant.

    Pressure will help more than heat will
