Wow! I need one of those too!

Bummer that it's $15 + shipping though.

Nice job on the new wheel by the way.


You can find the exact match from West Marine

Jumping in late on this thread. I literally have read every post twice and am fascinated by how beautifully the boat and trailer turned out, Shep. Thanks for sharing your experiences and thanks to all the TT faithful who also shared ideas and comments.

I just bought a 2004 X-10 which is in great condition overall. However, it is losing a number of decals, especially over the transom.

This is a tiny job compared to what you've described here. However, I've wondered what it would take to remove the rest of the decals, sand/buff to restore the finish and then apply new decals. Your experiences here (and the knowledge of the forum) makes this a much less daunting task.

Thanks for sharing all of this. I'll do the same when I get to my tiny project.

Goo gone works good on pinstripe goo. Make sure you warm the goo first. (wife's blow dryer)

Use Goo Gone on the pinstripe residue. Apply a little heat with a blow dryer first or do it on a 80 plus day in sunlight.
