if your sap is anything like Pine Tree sap the Rubbing alcohol will do the trick, also try this link it will help next time you store your boat.

Acetone works, too.

3m glue and wax remover will remove just about anything without damage.

Before you spend a lot of money try Bon Ami. It was $1 at local grocery store. Cleaned up my Hobie 17 that had been outside for three years with no clean up. Even got rust stains out.
