David; In the first line of your second paragraph, do you mean "attack" instead of "attach"? Ed Schroeder #303 Emotional Rescue

I am removing the coamings to refinish them. 
I started by reading the e-mail traffic on this topic.  I found the e-mails
very helpful and  have printed a number of them out. At this point, all the
bolts are out. The current problem is: separating the coamings from the
fiberglass. I learned from reading the e-mail record that putty knives and acute
angle wood wedges can be used to separate the coamings from the fiberglass. I
have been using a putty knife and I think I am making progress piercing through
the sealer. I will look around for some wedges tomorrow.
What I would like to know is if there is a solvent that will attach the black
sealant but that would not bother the fiberglass or the teak? While I am willing
to use force if  necessary, I would really like to finesse this problem. 
For example, could "unbond", the product used to remove 5200, work? I
know it does not attack fiberglass, but do not know about its reaction with teak
or the black sealant between the coamings and the fiberglass.
