: For those of you who are interested. I made contact with 3M and
: they told me that the 5200 adhesive/sealant is permanent. No
: solvent will will remove it--- just sanding and scraping with a
: razor blade.

Something I forgot to mention. 3M says they make this gunk in Mahogany also. I purchased the 3M 5200 from West Marine. I asked for clear and the clerk said 3M does not make it clear. he failed to tell me or did not know 3M made it in Mahogany. The shelf only had white and black. Needless to say how I felt! The Mahogany would not have made such a mess...
