Boat Registration Decals

10 posts in this topic

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

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
