Lettertech.com for the decals, even have 205 and you can choose the 2 color combo, $165. The decal for one of the 190 has the electronic fuel injection, you could call them and ask if they can make it 205.

Lettertech looks good. Just sent them a message about adding the EFI script for the 205. And, adding reg decals in a matching font.

First outing on our home lake. Beautiful day, boat was fantastic.

Need trailer grip tape
I replaced the grip tape on my '92 trailer two years ago. The new stuff was awful: it started to shrink and peel last summer after only 9 months. It looked disgusting. I replaced it last week with aluminum diamondplate, and IMO it turned out great. I'm not smart enough to post pics here, but I could text them to you if you'd like.

The diamond plate is a great idea, love mine - not sure if McCrosky did it or Jerserdave. I suspect McCrosky since he owned a metal shop in NLR AR

The diamond plate is sharp. Still thinking about the trailer.

Started on the swim platform.

Top and outside edge are done.
Bottom and between slats still to do.

The openings between the slats is going to take awhile.

That is after Starbrite cleaner, brightner and 1 coat oil.
No sanding.

The PO said he oiled it a couple times a season. I don't think it had ever been cleaned before though. Took about 3 hours of scrubbing with the stainless cleaning pad to get all the black stains and old oil off. I didn't get the areas between the slats very clean. My pad didn't fit in there well.
Will save that for next time.

Debating now if I should do a couple more coats of oil with sanding (1500 and 2000) between coats.
