Boat Lettering

9 posts in this topic

Does anybody have any suggestions on who will do, or where I can get decent lettering for our new boat in the Metro Area?

I've seen some very nice registration lettering on some boats out there, and I was just wondering where I could get it done at.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We pick it up in 2 weeks. laugh.gif

Some boat dealers also do custom lettering. You could also check with area printing shops and check the yellow pages. Most any decal/lettering shop can print out nicer decals and they can also apply those for you also. If you purchase them and have them shipped to you, they are pretty easy to apply.

If you look in approx 1 week, Fishing Minnesota will have new decals online to order for your boat if you are looking for some additional lettering.

The new HSO-Hot Spot Outdoors and the Fishing MInnesota decal look pretty nice.

I've had very good luck with Fast Signs - they have nice varieties and good pricing.

I like lettertech, they have a multitude of colors and styles and the turnaround is less than a week. Just do the www.lettertech thing and it will show up.

Agree with lettertech, I've used them for years and they have all the fonts and colors you would need to match or look good with your boat.

How about Sign*A*Rama. I had to mention them since I spent a few years under the roof of the Roseville Location, but there are locations across the metro. I had the Woodbury location make my boat lettering nothing fancy but I had them made with white reflective vinyl.

FastSign is another option. Plenty of location all over.

Any sign shop that does vinyl lettering will be able to take care of you. If you have never been to one I would suggest stopping in to see what they have to offer. The amount of choices are just about endless and only restricted but your imagination and pocket book!

Fastsigns or lettertech. I've used them both with good results.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
