Default What do you think of my potential Boat graphics ?

This is for my wakeboard boat I just built. I'll post some finished pictures of the boat when its all done. The Image below is a design i'm thinking about wrapping the boat in.

Its a 21.5 Tige V drive with a brand new Merc 5.7, new tower, New interior, New system, new Ballast system, Basically ALL new.




Opinions ?

mmmm pretty cool, but I'd not wrap anything below the waterline unless it was overlaminated and then I'd want $$$$ for the PITA it'd be to do

Of course even laminate wont protect from the friction wear of the trailer runners , might want to take that into account I only did this stuff for 20 something years (Qualified Signwriter by Trade), till i got smart

I like the graffiti idea, but I think it would be cooler if it actually said something?

Thats a good point, I'm lucky that i don't have to take it in and out. I'll will stay at my dock all summer, i only take it out at the end of the season.

I'll probably only do it to the water line, i don't want it to look weird though. when its sitting in the water or we are driving the water line is obviously different.

I've been trying to think of something to do for 6 months, there aren't any words that make sense to put on the side. i dont want the company name.

this has been the hardest graphic to come up with.

i figure illl do this one and if i come up with something else i'll change it.

For the differing waterline you could always incorporate the color of the hull into the graphic at the bottom so it isn't a solid line between graphic and hull.

Yeah, make it look like an old pontoon boat.

Or maybe a guy hanging off the side like he fell overboard and is trying not to get pulled under the boat and into the prop as you're screaming across the water.

Or chrome. Top to bottom, front to back.
