I remember a post from a year or so ago that talked about where to get new decals for the sides of a Whaler (89 15 sport). I am having a new gel coat layer sprayed on and need new decals. Any suggestions? Also is there a clear coat over them?

Sue at Twin Cities Marine has been a joy to work with in getting new parts such as a rub rail.

Check ebay, search on Boston Whaler, there are usually several auctions for decals going on there. I don't know what the quality is but it's worth a look.

This isn't going to be much help, but it might jog someones memory. I think the place is a print shop in Sanford, Florida. I can't find it in the archives.

I bought a set of Montauk size decals for my 13 on E-Bay for $16 delivered. They seem nice but if it was my boat that I just put a new gel on and was gonna keep her a while....go with draftmanswife @ magic brush. They are authorized Whaler decal people and will guarantee their work.

BS: Will Janis also do custom work? I have got "Chesapeake" painted on the side of my Nauset. It is about 4ft wide by 8" high. The paint is chipping and I cannot seem to find the specific color of Pettit paints any longer. I thought of having the whole thing re-done as a decal. Can Janis do? Would this be a recommended way to go about this?

Got mine from my local Whaler dealer. The price was actually somewhat cheaper than the price on Ebay.

Mine were the larger ~24" long ones.

I bought a set at my local dealer a few months ago. They were the smaller ones for the 13', for my rear window in the truck. Can't remember the exact price but it was under $15.00 for the pair. These were original Whaler from their parts department, I had ordered them when I was still parts mgr there.
No pattern to their parts prices, some are so cheap you can't believe it and from there we goes to the moon.
I know that volume has a lot to do with it but I can remember times calling the parts department and aking a price on a part, the quote was ridiculous the Whaler guy would re-check his computer and say "We are paying $xxx for it" After hearing their cost and adding the normal mfg to dealer mark up the price was fair, but way overpriced to the mfg.

I assume she can. To remove the old name, use EZ-Off oven cleaner but original scent. The lemon scent is a "lemon". I had mirage on the side of my Scarab. It was big and in good shape but Baby blue. I used EZ-off and then had it reairbrushed for $175. Looked SWEET!

Thanks fella's:) To remove old vinyl graphics, try not to use the easy off. Try a little bottle called "goo-gone". If graphics are painted, use the easy off, but be sure to flush it real good. After time, I have experienced "spidering" of gel-coat on older models, after using this method. Best thing is to get some 800g sand paper and "wet-sand", then buff. Any chemicals added to any surface will show ware after a period of time. Anyway, I got the decals your looking for Jim, give a call...386-736-1142
