    Thanks for the helpful hints folks.

    I tried a heat gun and it worked really well if I was going to re-carpet, but I am not. Also the existing corners of the plywood are damaged and would take a while to repair strong enough for my needs. Since I am always on limited time, I figure I can cut new plywoood faster than I could clean and repair the existing ply pieces. I will be gluing Teak and Holly Ply down on top of the new ply.

    It wouldn't hurt to try some Goof Off or Acetone - I suspect it will work pretty good on that glue

    +1, get it as smooth as you can.

    I would be interested in this also. I was thinking of an adhesive remover not too much in the volitol organic compounds. Any ideas? Mine is on fiberglass.

    Carpet Adhesive Removal?-gctid399409

    I pulled up the carpet in my main salon today. There is still a good amount of adhesive residue left behind and also some of the underside of the carpet itself.

    What is the best/easiest way to remove this stuff from the plywood?

    I was thinking of a heat gun. Any other solutions?
