Use boiling water or a hair dryer.

You can use a heat gun but you need to be careful, it's important not to hold the heat gun over the same spot for too long. If your heat gun has a variable thermostat just turn it way down low.

Sometime people lose patience when using a heat gun and try to hurry the process along and end up overheating the boat.... patience is key.
