    good info thanks but i would like to now the process of removing it . i ve heard of just pulling it off and heard of using a wire with loops on each end like the ones plumbers use to cut through the glue .

    Either method works. As it can not be re-used, I will be breaking mine off in pieces. Will probably start with a small pry bar in an area that is not prone to damage. The surrounding areas will be taped off for protection.

    Because the adhesive seeps into the tops material and will always be there.
    Once the bubbling starts nothing will stop it except replacing it

    The sail panel is very,very flimsy..

    It will more than likely break trying to remove it.

    If you could get it off without breaking it, as stated the adhesive ruins the panel permanately..
