Tree sap on hypalon boat

Yikes got a fair bit of pine sap on my new boat. Anyone have any recommendations for cleaning? I have goo gone but not sure if it will hurt hypalon or if I should use something else. Thanks buzzards!

My boat was completely covered in cottonwood sap, one trip down Browns canyon, sap all gone. I had just 303'd the boat, maybe it helped the sap slide off once in the water....

Hand Sanitizer will break down tree sap. I use it on my truck all the time. It shouldn't hurt hypalon.

Is it a 16 foot hypalon boat? if so it is ruined and you should just sell it to me for a VERY good price since it's ruined an all.

303 definitely creates a barrier that resists adhesion. I try to keep a fresh coat on my boat all of the time now. That is before the fact... After the fact I tried some WD40 on a Maravia a few years ago and it worked but that was urethane. I would call the manufacturer before trying it on hypalon.

Isopropyl rubbing alcohol on a cotton rag.

Yep, works great, it's the alcohol that does the trick. Isopropyl, vodka, everclear, would work to. Possibly bow riding a drunk friend.
