My new decals arrived today from Magic Brush in Deland, FL. There wasn't any instructions included. Before I call, any tips on installation? I assume that the letters/logo peel off of the backing, rather than the entire piece of clear plastic going on the hull. I'll go through cetacea to look at getting the placement correct.

Hi Eric..found this info: http://www.decalstore.com/instructions.htm
(I like the idea of soapy water to be able to adjust the decal..not sure if it applies to gel coat application but seems feasible)

I have used the soapy water, just a little liquid soap in a spray bottle filled with water.
Hard to make a mistake using this method.

I used the soapy water in the spray bottle to install the name and registration numbers on the sides of my Montauk when I rigged it. Went on like a charm. The little bit of soap in the water allowed the new decals to slide around until they were properly sited. Used the squeegee to get all the water out and affix the decal.

Window cleaner (windex) will work too and you don't have to mix it up and find a spray bottle.

Do you spray the windex on the vinyl decal or the surface? How long do you let it dry before you remove the backing?

Got the site open, I just had to put in the address correctly. Thanks.
