    I may be in the minority but I absolutely love your boat with that original graphic

    This is what I could get cleaning with a q tip. Disclaimer, in my 7 years with this boat, this is the first time I've done it.

    Another thing to point out, you have to be careful when wiping the boat down with a towel. The corners of the raised letters can catch, and you can end up pulling the letters up some. The tops of my M are loose from people catching them with the towel. I warn people now to be careful around the letters.

    I’d do a flat sticker like the 90’s boats. Although I don’t have experience w the domed letters.
    Good point, hadn't thought of that.

    Again, good point. Do they clean up okay with fair amount of effort though? Or do they stain and wear over time?

    Dang, that looks good!!! I think I'm leaning black satin. Any other thoughts or comments? Wish I could find a little cheaper price. Great Lakes Skipper has the 2017 satin white for $189, but MCparts Depot and Waterskis.com want ~$390 a piece for black satin.

    Option 3
    Raised Satin White (similar to Satin Black above, but used in 2017). Found them in stock and they seem to be roughly 2/3 the cost of the black.

    Could always add Domed Emblem Overlay Set in black from domednumbers.com over the top, which could look sharp, but I believe are only available in gloss black, not flat.

    Matte black will look awesome on your boat.

    started a topic Replacement Boat Decal Poll - what would you do?

    Replacement Boat Decal Poll - what would you do?

    So with the vinyl getting redone this September, I'd like to freshen up the exterior as well, once I get her back home and looking for some feedback/opinion from the peanut gallery.

    I'm considering two options:

    Option 1
    DomedNumbers.com, domed triple outline (no gradient), in a 6in high x 60.5in wide, exactly like the bottom black example pic down below. Or should I consider 4in high x 40.3in wide?

    Option 2
    OEM Satin Black Raised Decal (used 2014-2016) from Waterskis.com, 5in high x 46in wide, see pic below. Actually almost wish I could still get white, but with a black trailer, rubrail and other interior black accents, I think black makes the most sense.

    Either way, I would be removing the smaller MasterCraft drip molded logos on each side near the stern.

    Last question. Do I gain anything in terms of fading with white gel and given the fact the boat's been garage kept it's whole life, or is it a sure bet I'm going to have a fair amount of compounding?
