Anyone with a 30th Anniversary knows what happens to those emblems that they glued on the seats. They fall off and the glue leaves a terrible stain. Here is what I did with mine, I got them embroidered. I think they look pretty good.....now all I have to do is put them back on the seats.

Dude, not only do you have a bad bimini. Now you got the baddest 30th seat skins on the Planet, Captain.

Excellent!

Yea, they turned out pretty good. Tonight putting them back on the seats is my goal. I have to run to Lowe's to get some stainless steel staples first.

Almost 1000 staples, 3.5 hours, and 4 beers later the skins are on the seat bases. Put them back in the boat on Saturday. Looks good. I'm so glad I did this. Been talking about this for a while.

Post pictures of the finished product. They do look nice. Whoever did the embroidery did a great job.

I didn't have my camera with me two weekends agp at the lake when I put them in the boat. I will post pictures of each seat when I get back up there (observer seat and rear seat).....which won't be till June. :(

It's bad and I don't mean as in bad-arse. Like, terrible bad. As a matter of fact I appreciate the reminder, I need to take it back and have it adjusted again.

You have the "really bad bimini"! Very nice.

NIce seats though!

Do you have the image on a digital file? I would still like to do this for my seats as well. I talked with a local company, but they need a digital file for the embroidery. I thought about scanning one of my decals, but they said that wouldn't work with what they have.

OK, I was dogging it last year. So I am gonna pull the trigger! Chris at Boathouse Marine says he does remember your project and commented on how nice they turned out. I guess Kim is no longer working for them but Chris said he would try and track her down...

I have some brand new skins just waiting for some new emblems (er, embroidery!)

Tricky, I don't know how I missed this. Uh, you're just jealous. That cart runs like a top, rebuilt the engine 2 years ago and it just keeps going. That cart has been in my family for 24 years.

Not much I can do about it! I am relying on others to help me with this project... If they never call me back I have to assume they are not interested in working with me. Too bad, I would have really liked the end result...

Hey I am having my rear bench seat and forward bench seat worked on and cannot seem to find replacement anniversary glue on emblems for seats like they came from factory has anyone crossed this issue. I am trying to keep boat original and this seems to be the one hold up? The picture is of a skier and a boat with the stars and stripes and a 30th underneath. any advice anyone??

If you do a search on here for the 30th stencil someone has the file that they had embroidered into the seat. That glue was a paing to deal with.

That is your best alternative
