No doubt the Uckum Pucky has it stuck to the hull. It may take some more extreme measures to remove it.

You can use a short length of welding wire to burn through the adhesive. Using a 12v DC battery, run two leads (about six feet long). Tie the welding wire onto the leads. The wire gets very hot and will burn through the adhesive without damaging the gel cote. There will likely be a thin layer of adhesive remaining. That will have to be cleaned off with with a rubbing compound and some elbow grease.
