gel coat finish

Is there any type of solvent I can use thats safe on a Gel Coated finish? I need to remove some glue residue left from old velcro. Some of it seems very hard and brittle. I am afraid I'll remove more then the old glue without checking first.

You might try a product called Goo Gone. I have used it to remove old tape and glue residue. You have to spray it on, leave it a couple of minutes and give it a chance to work. It may take a few tries to get it to work. It is not a solvent. Read the label to make sure that it is safe on gelcoat. Good luck.
