This isn't Neptune. I've recently bought a Ribcraft 4.8 which I intend to take to uni. The previous owner stuck the name in big hypalon letters on the side which I just couldn't live with. It looks great now though

Before and after. Im hoping that the fading will be less noticable in a few months once the sun has got the uncovered bits

Excellent job!

I wonder if some "tube finish refiner" (TFR for short ) would be able to help bring back the tube colour?

I tried some tfr on it but it won't budge. Theres a few years sun on the surrounding fabric so I've just got to wait for it to catch up.

doh thats a shame

Looks a darn site better than it did though. Maybe you could put a new name patch over it? do you have a picture which includes more of the boat?

I did consider a name patch. I quite like it plain though:

Here is a pic I took part way through, you can see how the flap wheel sort of half melts and peels the glue back without really having any effect on the hypalon (I think the amount of pressure is probably quite important though, i.e. not too much) and once I had got it all off it was just slightly roughened for the new patch, which seems to have stuck well enough

For a patch a flap wheel is probably best. The majic stuff wins hands down over any other method for visable bits though.
