This is what I do. It works very well. Basically, you rehydrate it, and then steam it off.. I normally only have seen issues with shine removal if I've not kept on top of the waxing situation.

Every sailor should carry a squeezable seagull or two in their locker, for such emergencies - would have saved Robert Redford's a** !

Hmmm...

The seagulls that I am familiar with do not require squeezing to produce the resin... simply waving my arms at them gets the stuff all over my dinghy, where they love to perch!
