steps leopard cat

Does anyone know how to remove steps in front of salon windows on a 45' leopard cat. Have removed bolts tried pying up but afraid of cracking fiberglass, trying to replace windows.

Will heat make it a little more plyable? I don't mean a propane torch...more like a hair dryer.

Try a Fein Multitool with a sharp scraper type blade. That's how the boat yard did it on my Leopard 46.
