Someone else will have to tell you how to chemically dissolve it. I
would first try to remove as much as possible mechanically, say with a
knife or razor blade. If you can pry an edge up you might grab it with
pliers and pull a big chunck off. I suspect it would soften lots with
a heat gun or hair dryer.
I emailed the Goop manufacter, here is their answer (see below). I will try
to buy some acetone from homedepot tonight to see if it works....

Many solvents will help dissolve Goop. Acetone or Toluene or Naphtha would
be good choices.

I have been using Goop for many years, I love this product. The Goop is very
strong, sometimes I feel that it is WAY TOO STRONG!! Recently I am facing a
problem, I sticked something to my boat and now I want to remove it. but it
is very difficult as I don't want to use razor blade to damage the surface.
I asked people on the Internet they told me to use a dry clean chemical
called "trichloroethylene" but I can't find it in local hardware store.
I think Goop company should consider having a new product for called "Goop
removal".. just some suggestions.
