    Bayliner 3988 raised profile lettering

    Thanks everyone, I have learned a lot on this website, but this might be a tough one. Does anyone know where I can purchase new outside lettering for my 1995 3988. 23 yrs in the sun has taken it's toll. I need all the raised lettering The Bayliner logo original part # 55462,.... the 3988 logo part # 58365,.....and the yacht logo part # 55463. and all the outside decals like water, Diesel, electric, and Holding tank labels. I do not know if they re-produce any of these, if any can be made, or any NOS ones laying around. Regards, Ken

      Thanks, Marc. I had looked at there store on ebay, but must have overlooked the letters. I just ordered a set of the BAYLINER letters. I will call them about the 3988 #'s and bayliner emblem... I did not see them on there site.

        You are correct as I couldn't find the numbers myself. My boat came without both. Previous owner said the detailer made a buffing mistake; so he took both letters and number off. Actually, it looks great without and people at docks are always asking me what model boat I have? Ha Ha

            WOW! What a shine! You Have that Boat looking great! I purchased mine last June and am trying to get the shine back. Have compounded twice....Painted the window frames....and am trying to replace or touch up the pin stripes and those logos. Never thought about just getting rid of them. I think this Boat has lived it's whole life in the full sun. It. is docked in an open slip in FLA. with Sun everyday. I live in CO. so I do what I can. It is already looking better than when I purchased it though. Thanks for help...regards Ken

ID:	408827 I actually removed all the badging and stripping from my 39 before I had it detailed and I really like the "clean" look. As Bay 39 said, I have had quite a few people ask me what kind of boat it is....lol

                  Alex,
                  your boat is looking sharp! What did you use to remove all the decals and lettering?

                    Woodsea.....great hearing from you and thank you again for the help in Oakland! After a little research, I used a 3M strip off wheel that you attach to your drill motor. You can Youtube it to see it in action. Once you get the hang of it, it works really well to remove any vinyl stripping. I purchased the wheel on Amazon. You want to buy the one that includes the mandrel. Here's a link:

                    Hope you're doing well!! If you ever head south, give us a call; I'm on the same dock as Jim.

                  There's rubber discs you can buy at NAPA and put on a drill.. removes vinyl and decals from fiberglass amazingly well.. spin it slow and work the speed up til you can feel it remove well. It heats up where it's rubbing, so you gotta get a feel for it.. I stripped an entire 34ft winnebago motorhome with one wheel.. still have it. Once you're finessing it right, it goes really fast and leaves zero marks on your fiberglass. Just go in and ell them you need one of the decal eraser tools.
