Removing paint from Hypalon?

I want to remove the painted logos from the boat but not sure what is best and safest to use? They are Hypalon tubes.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

If it's paint or any cover your gonna have an outline left by the uv damage the boat has undergone over the years. I would just put a wear patch over it cause it's not gonna be pretty once you take the paint off.

Definitely not going to put a wear patch! The boats only 2014 and the paint about 1year old. It's also been kept in a garage all its life when not in use so hopefully there shouldn't be much fading

Only other reason I would say is that it was probably sanded down when the paint/glue was put on. This would still leave a mark.
