Hi All -

Wife wants to make sure we name this boat (2520 DVSC) versus just calling it "the boat" like our old Mako. I am leaning towards putting the letters on the side of the cabin, but am open to the side of the boat too.

Any suggestions on placement and size of the letters would be most appreciated. I want it to look sharp :D

thanks,

I like the looks of the name either on the cabin sides or on a plaque fastened to the bow rail. I plan to have a plaque or signboard put on the bowrail. The boat will be named after my wife's grandfather, a former tugboat captain: The Capt. John D.

John Dakin was a charter member of the tugboat captain union and ran a boat out of Baltimore (for Moran, I think).

Getting ready to do mine this weekend (weather permitting).
Using the same font and style as my previous boat.

Nope. I considered removing the Parker logo, but decided against it.
It will be going on the side of the pilothouse. :)

Do you guys think its best to keep it black and red to be consistent with logo and stripe ?? Would like Green and Gold but concerned it will be too busy.

Mine will be basic black, but I have considered a kelly green boot stripe...
In that case, green and gold would work perfectly. :)

Don't worry about us... go with your heart. :D

Hey B-Faithful,

FYI I don't say it enough, but I love the profile of your boat. Every time I see your signature here, I envision graphics depicting large teeth and a growl, much akin to the WW2 Mustangs, up by the bow. Now that would be cool 8) 8) 8)

Thanks for the compliment. But I think the Tomahawk/Warhawks had the shark teeth.... http://kits.kitreview.com/p40btrump48reviewbg_1.htm

Late add to different name layouts but just got all stuff off transom swim platform while doing spring prep, and put it in the water today.

Here is transom lettering on another I/O, on a 2530.

Is a green hull, and ended up using red vinyl to match Parker color and light grey for home harbor.

Had a price back in '98 to have red lettering painted with gold trim for about $250 and just went with vinyl instead.

Mine is on the side of the hull...but if I had to do it all over again, it would be on the side of the cabin. I've discovered that docking in a strong wind with high waves has scrapped both the name and the Parker striping.
