keep them for sure! It makes it stand out from the dull boring boats like mine.

Pull off one side, look at it for a few weeks. See what ya think.
Worst case, you can order the decal again.

Flipper, can you put domed chrome MasterCraft on the side of it? I bet that would look pretty smooth.

thanks for the input so far.

it's got the "small" domed mc on the back of each side. this gives a better look at the "flames".

Where are your registration #'? I don't see them in the pics. i do like the tow vehicle!

Love the colors. I actually think the X2 in the circle, on the switched paint scheme looks great. You can change logos relatively easily.

Put those 2 ladies in the bow from your avatar and that's the only change it needs! :D

Or move to Philly and becomes a Flyers fan! 8p

again thanks for the input so far. i do like the bulleye graphic, maybe next year.

pearson, in the first pic i had just bought the boat so no registration numbers. now have chrome with black outline. look pretty sharp.

that is my son in the avatar from nationals last summer. here is the pic a little bigger for ya.

In your case I'd say lose the flames...sharp boat.
I got the block letters on my X2 and have seen 2 other combos I really like.

Another vote here for losing the flames. I think the X2 looks good though. I'd leave that.

Yes heat gun and then just see what glue is left. When I replaced mine the guy had to wet sand the adhesive off before applying the new.

Get the 3M rubber attachment for a drill. They work great and leave not glue mess to deal with.

Lose the flames, but keep the girl on the right of that photo (whew weeee!! ;-)

I took all of my logos off of my X9 by hand, and used nothing but the sun to heat the boat up. A little Meguiar's cleaner/wax got everything looking smooth & even again very easily.

Good luck!

I would agree with removing the X2. Great looking boat - just too busy.

Steve O - I'd vote for removing the X2 also. I took my X30 off a few weeks ago. Looks like I have a new boat.

Is that picture over near Lake Chelan? I notice the smoke from the fires.

Tom, That is Chelan during the August fires. We were slightly North of 25 mile creek. Saw Your X30 Saturday after UW game. I went to the cove with a buddy and saw yours in the distance. Those monster tower speakers caught my eye first (NVS?) then the CLEAN line of that red metal flake. Looks great.

anybody seen any with all the graphics removed from switch graphics and replaced with something different?

i'm leaning toward removing X2 and MC and basically swapping positions.

finally got around to removing the x2. I was amazed there was no oxidation for a 7 year old boat with 480 hrs. plan on doing the "mastercraft" along both sides next spring.

kind of a chore with it being on the lift!

Its Looks good with the MasterCraft letter on the rear now...
I had to take both sets off mine , they were marred pretty bad.

I just received the 2015 Black Brushed Aluminum versions yesterday...

lashburn, look forward to seeing a picture of those!

if I go with the large "mastercraft" along each side the small ones will be removed.

aric, it's growing on me just clean.
