Why would you remove them?
Just sand and recaulk.

Quite a few had been lifting up and all caulking is gone, so I'm just guessing that maybe the blue or whatever was holding them down could be compromised.

Re: Stunning abandoned yacht

The Yacht looks good but to no avail. It should be auctioned for more.

Multi's not sailing to weather is a popular myth.
Charter cats often are under canvassed on purpose and fit that description, but that's not all multi's. Daggerboards/centerboards make a lot of difference as well.

I routinely make 90 degree or better tacks to weather, even with all the extra stuff aboard to make life easy.
