I second Dennis’s prescription.   It does not need much heat, but a good 
scraper is key.   

Don’t waist your time with a cheap metal blade scraper.  Get a Bahco #665 ($25 
on Amazon) which has a  tungsten carbide blade.  The blade will literally last 
you a lifetime without the need to sharpen.  I purchased one about 5 year ago 
along with a replacement blade. I have used it from scrapping off bottom paint 
to toe rails.  I have pretty much abused the scrapper, and I still have not 
needed the spare blade.
