I hear you RE: Mastercraft decal, I too like that look. That said, I have been struggling with what to do with mine... leave the decal, remove it, or change it. I think there may be some merit to leaving it bone stock.

(I just bought in July last season so have had all winter to think about it and I am no closer to a decision)

My wife cares less... need someone to care! What do you guys think?

I'm typically the "bone stock" sort of guy, unless it's a small subtle change, or if there is something horrendously wrong with the original. In your case, the split color on the hull might be problematic in terms of replacing the decal with lettering. Logic says you would have to go above or below the split -- in the white area it might look too high and in the blue it would be too low. Straddling the split with the lettering doesn't seem like an option. Dunno?

That has been and is my thought as well. It's actually a cool decal with Lots of detail when you see it up close. That said, I am still partial to plain white boats and aircraft....just something about it that works better for me than the loud designs of today's x-stars.....

An all white one with that curved glass would be sex on water.

The Star Wars style lettering makes me think a 20 yr old with access to photoshop won a design contest judged by 18 yr olds.

Rims with spinners to boot ;0)

Keep the decal for sure. Flows with the colors of the hull! Love the color combo and the boat. Wish I still had my 205v hull boat.

Beatiful boats, make me want to sell the 205 and get a 205V or X1.
