Does anyone know how to apply new Whaler decals? I need to install new decals (the ones available on EBay), and don't know quite how it's done. Heat?
Thanks in advance.

Toby, I to ordered decals from e-bay for my revenge. They include directions how to apply. I would contact them for the directions. To remove the existing try oven cleaner with a heat gun, it will all most fall off with a little scraping.

I have the eBay decals, and they come with a white background (instead of clear). It looks pretty stupid on my Revenge. I plan to replace them with OEM when I can get to it.
Just something to consider.

I have the E-Bay ones and they are like OEM. I just carefully peeled back the white paper and applied on the boat from left to right. I used a piece of masking tape as a guide to make sure I was straight(no jokes here). I then rubbed the heck out of it with a plastic bondo scraper and slowly peeled off the wax paper on top. If it starts to lift, rub again and retry. You can use soapy water to give you some movement but with that decal I did it dry.

WHen I replace my decals, I sprayed water and dishwashing liquid soap on the hull, then put the decal in the correct location. The soapy waater lets you adjust the placement. When you haave it where you want it, squeegee the air bubbles out. Works like a charm. I used OEM decals, available at any dealer for a reasonable cost.
