removing sticky pads?
i took off all the foot pads because they were falling off anyway but now there is this sticky film on the deck

Acetone (wal mart) won't hurt the fiberglass, but will remove the paint.

There have been a few posts on this subject.
I use WD-40 to soften the adhesive, then scrape it off with a plastic scraper or nylon scrubbie pad. You can also buy plastic razor blades. Then I use Simple Green to get the oily film cleaned off.
Others have used some solvents, but you need to be careful you don't eat into the gel coat.
Sometimes a gentle application of an electric heat gun (low setting) can soften the goop enough to scrape it off. Don't use a torch.
