Check with Sue at Twin Cities Marine the BW dealer in Two Rivers Wisconsin. Two years ago I was rebuilding my 1972 19' Outrage and I found a source for capacity labels on line. I sent Sue the link to that source which I can't find in my files anymore. My bet is that she still has it.

I think you are referring to custommarinelabels.com which is now out of business.

Thanks. I've bought from Sue before - 1st class operation. I want the metal plate - not a decal, so I may have to get it from a dealer or BWC.

I do not think metal plates used on the 13's until some time in the late 70's early eighties? My 1975 13 and my 1976 Newport have brown and silver capacity decals and not metal plates. You can not source these silk screen printed metal plates any more for whaler nor, anywhere else that I know of. Many have had luck having new engraved metal plates made by local trophy shops tough. I myself have recreated the files needed to reproduce many of the Whaler capacity plates. I print them out for myself on to a piece of vinyl and laminate them to a piece of 1/16" aluminum stock I have cut.

No plate was put on the '62 boat.
