I just received a new set of Whaler logo decals for the side of my Montauk (28" size decal), but no instructions for installing them. I'm looking for some advice on the procedure for installing them.

Thanks,

Mark

First, clean the area you want to adhere the decal to. Then spray it with soapy water.

Position the decal on the spot and then squeegee the soapy water out. The decal will stick exactly where you want it and it won't get damaged.

If it seems as though it is not sticking, let it sit in the sun for a while. The soapy water residue will evaporate and the decal will be secure.

JayR has the the instructions correct for installing the decals but as far as I know Montauks used 18" decals not 28".

Many of the mid to late 80's Montauks were infact 28" decals. Why? Hell I don't know, it's just what I've been experiencing. So, whenever someone calls and orders decals for those models, I specifically ask them to measure, to make sure which ones the factory were using that day. I understand that the overage of 28"ers need used. Mark, if you are still having trouble figuring our installation, just give the office a call. Thanks again,,, Take care,
Janis

My decals are in fact 28". Your technique worked great. The decals look great and went on no problem. The hard part was taking the old ones off.

Thanks,

Mark

Next time, try using a hairdryer and a plastic scraper to remove the decals. They peel right off. I've removed 40 year old decals in 5 minutes this way. Brian
