I would think that the older it is, the easier it might be to remove. The newer it is, the fresher the glue will be. But it really isn't hard either way. Would have been easier with 2 people, one person pulling it up, while the other person scrapes the bits that stick. Please take before and after shots and share them, and how hard it was and any tips you have!

Leave the boat out in the sun so the pad gets warm. I agree with Julian, the older it is, probably the less agressive the adhesive is, but its not hard to do. A plastic putty knife so as not to scratch the gel coat, a heat gun, patience, goof off and some mineral spirits go a long way!





There is a piece missing at the helm in this next pic, the kit was short originally but subsequently added (I just don't have a picture with it installed):
