What a nice change, today I changed out the lettering on one that was on the ground in a big marina storage warehouse. Warm and easy to reach.

Another neat job. Have you done any in the gold leaf vinyl?

Not on boats, but I did use it on windows at a fancy spa (look just below the upper crossbars). We also did that logo on the front, had to rent a boom truck to get over the awning.

If you ever get to use the RealGold products, they're awesome. 15 year warranty and it's a blast to see the final results.

This one was SignGold, probably about the same. It's 1 mil. Not cheap.

Yeh, nice boat. Wish I'd seen it first, I'd have charged more. I just had measurements.

My next door neighbor does all the Castrol signs for Canada both cut vinyl and vinyl print.. She came over and lettered mine while it was on the trailer in the driveway.. I laid it all out in Corel, and she cut it from my file..

Nice boat, and very clever name design. I've almost done that accidentally, when hanging over the transom to install the lettering when the boat was in the water.

Ya theres a story behind the name that has a lot to do with a 'long time away from boats' new owner that didn't know as much as he though he did, entering a crowded marina, during a thunder & wind storm, and a jambed lower shift cable (stalls the engine as soon as you put it in forward).:eek:. But, we won't go into details because it's far too embarrasing :D Lets just say that the next winters Power Squadron course was a good investment :D
