Just wondering if anyone has custom striping or decals on their boat. I thought it would look realy cool to have a boat with something different. I love the Supra flames, post some pics if you have something different.

Eric,

I seriously considered having some custom gel work done over the winter. I decided against it because I was afraid it would impact resale value. Vinyl graphics might be a better option.

I'd love to see pics if you do something.

I think some custom decals look good. I was just wonering if anyone on here has some boats like that. I have seen the black and green wrapped moomba and it looks awesome. So does the gravity games boat.

I tried to get stickers from SC. I never got a call back. I went to an outside source. They came out nice. As a matter of fact, I had a few decals made for the boat. Really dresed it up a bit. I will post pictures soon.

I think you can get them through the dealer, but i believe some folks on here have done them. I ordered a couple roos though a member on the board. PM me for more info.

Some people really like the naked look 8)

I personally like it, my wife not so much. But I would definatley keep thge Roo and maybe dress it up with a Moto Fox or some equipment sponsor stickers, like Boads or skiis or stereo equipment :D

We ordered our boat with no stickers (as a special request) but I guess we are odd-balls. I also removed all the badges/stickers from my cars.

San- I'd keep the roo. I like the simple look too. When ours showed up with flames I wasn't too sure. But I like them now although I may change it up a little next summer - maybe a different color (metallic).

I think that looks great with, and without; but I do prefer the blank look.

Ditto to that

personally, i hate the blank look, get some custom tribal on the side or something... boat looks very unfinished. i wouldn't keep that.

or atleast go blank and add some sponsorship vinyls.

I kinda have to agree with spyder, I'm not a fan of the naked look. At least not on the 2 tone boats. Naked looks great on a white boat, but I think you need something on the side, it helps transition the colors so you don't just have a hard line of color change. So if you take off the mobius sticker I'd at least put something else on the boat to help the transition.

I agree with Spyder also.. just looks very bland...
To each their own.. Maybe one of those custom wraps?
Those look awesome

Funny everyone seems to like the roo. I dont and would've gotten rid of them but my girlfreind likes them so they'll stay. I did take the outback V off on both sides. I also decided to order some gatorgrp and redo the swim platform plus im going to add some in a couple other places for tractiona and protection.
I like a real simple clean look with just a couple of decals. I love San's boat and think taking the outback V decals off would make it even better. Newty your boat is sick and I wouldnt change a thing. I love the Mobius decal you have.

Newty, I would stick with the Mobius graphics. That's one of the hottest LSV's I've seen. I now have boat envy.

Reese, you just made my chest puff out a little thanks.
When I told people about the color I ordered, most were very unsure, and thought it may not have been the best choice. The minute I saw it in person I knew we made the right choice. I thought it turned out great. The people mentioned above loved it as well.

When I purchesed my boat was jet black and had a bright orange trailer istead of black to match boat. They were going to paint trailer for me but had them put orange pine stripping along with custom registration numbers. It looks HOT. As soon as I pull it out of storage for winter will post pic's

I think it is an excellent color choice. It has a richness in the color and colors that should stand the test of time.
