I have used Anti-Bond 2015 available at West Marine or other Marine stores. Works good but slow.

Nuke it! Propane torch or small pencil torch for intant relief. Razor blade, X-Acto knife, sharped paint scraper for a little more work.

Indeed, will need a razor knife and patience. Might want to try some sort of solvent, such as mineral spirits to help loosen it up. If your removing a main deck to get to a fuel tank etc., before laying your deck down and recaulking with 5200, lay a strip of piano wire are metal leader wire around the edge and recaulk over. This process helps in the future if you have to remove the deck again. Just cut into the 5200 till you find the wire and with pliers start pulling. Happy cruising :)

lacquer thinner works for me, use a small brush.
