Glued-up Carpet/Cloth Removal

My wife and I are refitting a 1985 Hunter 40. In several areas of the interior, Hunter glued a decorative thin pile carpet of nappy cloth to the liner/hull.

Is there a known and preferred method to remove this material from the liner/hull?

Thank you for your time!

Rick

No doubt that's a rubber glue. Spray it liberally with WD40, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and the carpet should lift off. Clean up residual glue with WD40 and paper towels.

Residual WD40 should evaporate after a couple of days.

Most adhesives respond to heat.
Try a hair dryer and follow closely behind it pulling off the mouse fur.

Add Goo gone to your list of things to try, but WD-40 is a better solvent than many think, and it's safe for just about anything.
