So we're making a list of our winter projects for the boat, and besides the 1st priority of replacing the motor, 2nd up is new decals. Posting a pic of our Moomba, black and off white gel coat. We'd like to update the looks some, without going too radical (wraps are a no go with the wife).
The newer style factory decals are silver and bright white, which I don't think will match well with the off white gel coat. So, I've found a place that will re-create the moomba chrome decals for approx $225, much more reasonable than the $500 I'm hearing from dealerships. But we're not completely sold on the simple chrome lettering.
Does anyone have any other ideas, or pictures of custom Moomba decals installed?
Below is the new tower with bimini I ordered several months ago, can't wait to get it put on!

Uh, could always go naked! That and that new tower would leave a lot of guys wondering how old your boat really is...

Yeah I definitely think updating decals can make a boat look much newer. I'm not sure I'm a fan of the naked look, on most boats it doesn't seem 'finished' to me, maybe different once I have the tower on. I also thought of just doing vinyl "Moomba" lettering in that gold/copper color of the accent decals, rather than the 3d style chrome lettering.
Had custom decals made for our American Skier a couple years ago, turned out pretty good, definitely updated it from the old 90's style factory look!

What's up with the motor??? Blown up?'08 Mobius LS

Yep, blown head, and cracked manifold, motor seized. Happened during first hour of use after buying; existing condition from previous seller, or crazy coincidence.

The result is astounding! Even the dealer thought it looked better naked. Almost every time I take it out, on trailer or water, someone comments on how good it looks.Richard (LakePerson1952)

Sample came in the mail last week, here's a picture;
Chrome looks great, and is outdoor rated. Because these were samples the font wasn't the same that will be used for the finished product. I've requested a digital sample of the font, hoping to receive that this week and get an order placed.
