Wakesetter Decals

Recommended Posts

Charlie

We removed the side "Wakesetter" decals off our boat this winter and opted to go naked since the newer factory drip molded Wakesetter decals wouldn't fit on the old style hull.

Now, I'm on a mission to figure something out regarding newer looking graphics.

Questions:

What do I use to get the wax off the area where I'm putting the new decals and does anyone have any pics of the old wakesetter hull (current V ride I believe) with newer graphics?

I may just have a decal shop produce some graphics if they have decent material that won't fade.

Always open to suggestions...

Thanks,

Charlie

I've been thinking about removing the stickers from my 99 Response but have always wondered if the gel coat would be different where the stickers were. Is there a noticeable ghost where yours were? I actually like the look of a boat without all the wild stuff. Biggrin.gif

We pulled the decals from our '00 SLXi and it wasn't too bad on the white gel coat. It was pretty noticeable on the polo green stripe though. I had the boat wet-sanded and it looked like new. Never did put the side decals back on but eventually added the silver malibu drip-molds to the transom. Everyone who sees the boat thinks it's pretty sharp looking without the side decals...

The stickers were on the white portion of the boat and after a polish and waxing, you can't tell they were ever there. I might leave it naked, I just like the new drip molded font so I was pondering the thought. -Charlie

Where can you get the wakesetter tribal decals or something else for the sides?

Leave it naked! The older boats look great without decals.
