I found some posts on decals from 2011. Anyone know where to get decals now?

I just removed all of the striping from my boat. I used to like the accent but in short order the sun would fade it, the water would streak it and it looked dodgy. She looks clean now!

I found these guys and am trying to find out if they have a 3818. If not, I may start calling it a 3888.

Same here, but not the painted one on the bottom. How did you remove that, assuming you had this kind of stripe.

I was going to replace my OEM Bayliner decals as they were looking kind of "worn" after removing them, compounding, polishing and waxing to remove the "shadows" I just couldn't bring myself to put the decals back on as I really like the "clean" "naked" look. I have had many compliments on the boat without the decals...

A few years ago, I bought my 3288 decals from this guy. They matched perfectly. Try to email him:

I am with Jim Gandee - removed mine with intent to replace but left it clean as I think it looks better.

I removed the bottom (wide) strip with a heat gun and razor blade scraper. Took quite a while but came off. Be careful not to overheat.

Hmmm sounds like labor :) i may try the stripper route. Paint stripper that is. If I go the other way they charge too much.

I removed previous boat name decals and factory decals from my 3288 with a "decal erasers" on a cordless drill. I too am pretty happy with the clean look of no faded decals. My 2 cents worth. Dave

Robmiik, I like the look of yours without the decals. I've never had any particular desire to advertise someone's product. A subtle branding is okay, but that was, imo, more like a billboard.
I am in the process of replacing my stripes but not with anything overbearing. Half of the fun is in the designing.

Those worked beautifully for me, only issue is the big painted on stripe. I'll try the paint remover this weekend.
By the way, there are off brand eraser wheels that are a fraction of the cost of the 3m ones, work the same.
