    @jme097, Looks great! The badge in the middle limits what you can do with graphics. The PO of my boat removed the badge so he could use the entire hatch lid.

    Just launched my new (to me) 06 320EC into Lake St.Clair.  She's my first Rinker, and  my second Great Lakes boat.

    @Itzken lookin' good. What marina are you in?

    @chamberb I actually designed it on a site called "www.boatique.com". It was like $40. I wanted to do a custom graphic but the thought at spending $400-$500 was obnoxious to me. Thats a lot of gas I could burn. Looks good, I think, for $40

    All the names look great!  Itzken, love the fact yours goes across both sides of the rear cabinet.  If you had squeezed it in there, well, it would look like you did.  Really looks classy!

    You probably won't have this problem up north, but I put my graphic on 4 years ago, it has faded beyond belief.  Next time I will spend the money for a quality job that doesn't fade so fast. 
  • jme097jme097 Algonac, MIPosts: 1,103Member ✭✭✭
    @NavyCTRC Oh I believe it for sure especially in the south. I figured for $40-$50 if I have to replace it in 4-5 yrs it is still worth it rather than spend $400-$500. I just couldn't justify that lol

    jme097  what's Carl got the gas price over there this week?
  • jme097jme097 Algonac, MIPosts: 1,103Member ✭✭✭
    When I left Sunday morning I think gas was at $2.56-ish. This weekend starts the "street priced" gas I am pretty sure @JBam67

    jme097 has he opened the gas docks to the general public, or still just residents?

    @jme097, were your letters easy to put on? I have letters coming, and I'm worried I'll mess it up! Yours look great!

    @jbschmalz23 when I put mine on it came with some sort of tacky spray and they went on very easily with no bubbles. Just make sure you clean the area very good and maybe use a can of air to spray any dust or partials just sitting there. I have never been able to put a screen protector on my phone without bubbles and I did my MC numbers and Boat name without any bubbles or issues if that says anything. 
  • jme097jme097 Algonac, MIPosts: 1,103Member ✭✭✭
    @jbschmalz23 I found it very easy to put on. I made a bottle of water/dishsoap mix and sprayed it on the back of the decal and the fiberglass. Soaked both of them. That way you can get it where you want it and also get the air bubbles out.

    Your biggest area of concern is the prep. I washed down the fiberglass with Acetone thoroughly just to make sure it was clean.
