New Decals on an Old Boat  Bottom

  • Last year @tnell arranged a group buy for NACRA decals, and they had to be imported from Europe. It was a good deal, but since they didn't come until mid-October, I didn't get them on the boat until this Spring. Tomorrow should be a launch day, but today was assembling the boat, new trampoline, applying the new decals, new wire rigging, new shock cord, replacement front beam caps, and some miscellaneous bits and pieces. I even got the rudder adjustment screws put on that came from Edchris177. The only thing that didn't get done was hydroturf. I just need to get something to make a template from as I'm not confident in free-cutting this stuff.

    Anyway, I got NACRA 570 decals, and modified them to remove the 0 and used the center of the 0 to make a decimal, so NACRA 5.7 updated.

  • Photobucket didn't like me this weekend, but the boat is on the water. She looks pretty good for a 1984...I wish some sanding, paint and accessories could do the same for me.
