short answer?.. get the transom painted.
even if you by some miracle remove solely the name, the paint
underneath will be very different colour to the rest of the transom.

This is a painted on name on a awl-craft flag blue painted hull
, mirror finish. I spent most of the week wet sanding
(1500,2000grit) and power buffing with a 3m light compound. I have brought back the mirror finish. Of course there is still a shadow of the old name if you look very close, in the right light. It is very inconspicuous, if you where walking down the dock
, you would not notice the shadow of the old name.
My question is- should I continue to buff with light compound? I don't want to burn thru the flag blue awl-craft. Will the shadow marks of the eventually fade away? Any suggestions on other compounds. I am using 3m finesse-it. Should I just get the transom repainted?
