I bought this boat last sat from Atlanta inboards and love it. It is an 01 wakesetter w center ballast and monsoon motor has 170hrs im planning on rear ballast, perfect pass, and tower speakers.Atlanta inboard fully detailed and buffed the boat before i got it and it looks brand new.I was very happy w the dealership and highly recommend them. I bought some 2004 graphics for it but the wakesetter stickers is kinda growing on me. I cant wait to ride my board behind it.

Is there a product that helps get the old sticker off w/out hurting the gel coat or does it just pull off? The new graphics i got have the w in the middle inside a oval w tribal stuff coming off both sides.

You can use a hair dryer to get it started. Very low hours for an 01' also.

Sweet boat man, I like the decals it has now as well. Let us know how it rides.

Nice ride! I like to older decals much better than the "tribal" decals as well, but the key is making it look how YOU like. Have fun with it. Looks like an awesome boat! Rockon.gif

I never thought of heat im glad i asked. The only thing im worried about is if i take them off and you can still read wakesetter, my new graphics dont cover all the same area of the old ones. I have done saleen graphics on mustangs i just used soapy water im guessing i can do the same thing here. Is there a cleaner you guys would recommend before i put on new graphics. I couldn't believe it had 170 hrs on it, the dealer said i could put 300 hours on it and sell it for what i paid for it if i wanted, but i plan on keeping it for a long time.

Congrats on the new ride!

I used a hair drier and mineral spirits to take a couple stickers off my old ride. My gel coat was a little discolored from the sun - I put new graphics over the same spot.

Nice looking boat. I bought a 2001 VLX in September like yours but with yellow and gray. It also had the 2004 graphics and seat skins in it. I like the newer graphics.

You could read the old graphic a little when i took mine off i just used a marine oxidation remover and waxed her up real good.That blended it pretty well the uv will take care of the rest.this was on red which i think is about the worst as far as uv affects.you can heat a very small corner section to see how bad the color is and restick it if you want to.
