New Decals for Winter
 
As many of you might remember, I just bought this boat in September. (and they say rapping is hard). There's about a foot of snow outside, so it's time to bring it up to 100%.

Generally the boat is in amazing shape, but the decals were a little rough.

Being in the business, that just won't do! People expect more. As I finally had the time I decided to replace them. First, I traced the decals and scanned them into the computer. Then matched the colours with sign vinyl and cut new ones. Cleaned off the old and taped the new ones in place

first the gray to match the stripe...

Although I wanted to keep the classic stock look, I wanted to update it a little...

What is a decal replacement without matching HIN numbers? So, I radically modified an existing font to match the MC logo...

Tracing and digitizing the Prostar 205 logo was an adventure, but now it's all new.

I'll be finishing the stern decals tonight. It sure makes the boat look new!

Thanks! Avery High Performance A9. Less expensive than the 3M and just as good, IMO.

Thanks! It's my own business so it's all side work. It might be impractical for you as I'm in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I see there's a few of us Letterheads on the board. Farmer Ted and 87MC Dave.

I'm still trying to find my way in the decal industry, getting close to retiring from the Air Force and decals/graphics are something I seem to have a knack for, really chomping at the bit to get a Roland VP-540 but can't seem to find an extra $20 grand laying around........

Looks good, why so much dust on the trailer?
