Google "vinyl eraser wheel". This is what the pro's use.
Here is a video of one in action:

No matter what method you use to remove the name, you'll still have a ghost image of the old name. You can go crazy trying to buff and wax the transom so it matches the ghost or you can just live with it for a while. In a year or less it will have faded to match the rest of the transom.

When I google Bio-solve they seem to have quite a range of products. Which on in particular do you use?

A proper heat gun will help but the adhesive may be left behind, at least some of it.
3M makes an adhesive remover which I have used on both my trailer and boat to get rid of adhesive residue. Both gel coat.
