Boat Registration Decals

Question

HateHumminbird

I'm in the process of changing registration from a boat I bought in ND. It'll likely need new registration decals. Would be nice to have something that matches the current paint job. Where to go to find a good selection at the right price?

Online is easy enough, but a set for both sides plus shipping is around $30. Not confident on 100% color match either.

Joel dealers have them but they are much more than $ 30.00

Try Cabelas etc. they might have a better price.

I don't understand too why they are so expensive confused.gif

One really needs to shop around to find a decal designer that will do it for a little less. We have worked with numerous different companies for the race car and some have just as good of quality but a less spendy price. One also has to remember that usually the less expensive decals are on much cheaper printe paper. The good ones will stay on the vechile and not wash off with a pressure washer.

I dont know of any shop that will color match to your boat and then make two for $30.00. Good ones will run closer to $50.00 or more.I personally have not found them for less but they could be out there.

I do know that the place we have do our decals is much less expensive than most others and still uses good quality paper and does a great job.

I have a friend who wanted decals to match the custom color on his Ranger. He ordered decals online. He ordered them clear, with two shades of color on the boarder of each letter/number. The boarder essentially creates enough color that is different from the hull to make the letters/numbers very visible, but they match the hull (since it is the hull showing through. The boarder colors he chose were black and silver which are trim colors on the boat. Yes, they were $25+ shipping, but look great.

I ordered mine online as well through Lettertech You can choose your style and outline, and get it matched pretty well.

Decent prices too for the most part

I recently had the registration numbers put on my new boat by a local decal shop here in Alexandria. $30.00 installed, I took my boat by on a Tuesday and picked the color and font then went back on Thursday and he installed in less then 5 minutes.

They do this quite often and new all the requirements as far as size, spacing & location.

I would think you would have a local shop in your area that would do this.

As previously said don’t be cheap on your lettering it looks very nice when done correctly.

I have a black and silver boat, I bought decals that weren't too expensive ($15.95 from a dealer) that I thought were a pretty good match. They are from Hardline Products. I put them on myself, so basically I had sixteen bucks and some change into them after sales tax.

They are black and silver, I think the reflection from the flash and metallic flake in the decal makes them look a little more white than silver in the picture.

Although for $30, like S.D. Ice Angular talked about, that sounds like a pretty good price.

How about having a guy that does pinstriping. I had that done and a few more exrta lines and accents on the boat, motor and trailer and cost me $50. HTB

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.
