Default sticker removal

I registered my aluminum boat and they gave me a new MC number. How in the hell do you get the old ones off?

Heat works wonders....use a blowdryer if you dont have a heat gun. Just keep them hot and either use a razor blade or your fingernails to peel them off.

how old are they?
can you try to heat them up and peel off real easy.
or maybe a die grinder with a rough sanding pad in it.

Most likely from 1970.

I tried the hair dryer. I was very surprised at how easy they came off. I thought after all those years of being out in the weather there was no way a littlle heat would work. But a hair dryer and a razor blade took them right off.

easiest thing to do would have been to write down the numbers and have the boat registered to them. No need to worry about removal.

That is what I did. But since the boat was last registered in 92 SOS made me get a new MC number.
