'79 S&S cosmetic resto

So I'm planning on taking off the decals and dry sanding the whole hull sometime (later) this winter. I'm familiar with the dry sanding process but I really like the decals which the PO put on; he sort of shadowed the MasterCraft decal and I'd like to keep them; is it possible to re-use decals after they're removed? Given I don't rip them which I probably will.

Thanks.

I think it's highly unlikely that they will survive. I removed PO registration numbers and they were extremely time consuming to remove. The vinyl stretched, tore, ... during the process. Granted, they were old and I was not going to reuse them, but they were still vinyl and stuck to the boat really well.

Plan on a new set... I have never came close to salvaging a set...

Even when removing new just installed graphics, it is almost impossible to keep them intact.
