Over-Spray Removal

The previous owner of our 13ft. Scamp determined to spray paint the bumper without properly masking off the hull. And, as you would guess, there is overspray.

I've heard about marine grade paint removers. But, for a little bit of overspray, is there a more readily at hand way of working that over-spray off? Any help would be great.

Try soap / water and a scotch bright pad.
Try a scratch remover wax that you would use on a car.

I use acetone to clean all kinds of gelcoated fiberglass. Try it in a spot that won't show first and then go at it.

BTW: Some Scotchbrite "Type" pads will damage gelcoat. I only use the white 3M branded ones for that kind of work.

I had over spray on my car and used Mothers clay bar polishing kit in the red box at discount auto parts store. About 15 bucks and worked awsome.
