Would like to find oem stickers. If you know of where I can find them, please let me know. Not a huge fan of the ebay ones.

Well, let me state... they do not have to be exactly like this, I just like the fact they are sorta "raised"... colors is not too important, albeit would love to get blue with a silver border :p


Thank you

Russ

Actually, ordered the wrong ones.. they LOOK the same, mostly.. but the font was off.

These were from Serbia for 85 bucks.

I found the original ones here:

https://discontinueddecals.com/store/p/3890-Grady-White-Boat-Decals-and-Stripes-clone.aspx

But I am emailing them to verify. I called Grady and they pointed me to those. I have to go home and measure which length I need heh.

Also, need to verify the pinstriping is the same. If it is, they may have them as a kit.

If you read the details, those are reproductions. That's OK if they are raised but I have my doubts

Check ebay. they pop up there from time to time. In the interim try some Collinite cleaner and a buffing machine.

We used to have a older gent who lettered boats by hand painting. He also would repaint striping, particularly when it had small breaks or tears by matching the color and painting in the missing areas. He was a pleasure to watch. There are not too many of those artists around these days except on TV shows about custom motorcycle! Everything today is decals.
OK, showing my age..
One solution especially if you need to replace a long section of striping is to look at auto body shops and online detaining suppliers. You won't find the two color stripes but you can match the color and width of the individual stripes.

I just replaced my hull stripe on my 2000 Marlin. I called a dealer to get a new stripe, and they basically told me that they couldn't get that stripe any more. Instead, I ordered a new, 2-piece stripe from Boat U.S. It wasn't exactly the same (the old one was 3 pieces: a large blue stripe, with 2 smaller gold & blue stripes underneath), but I ordered the bottom stripe large enough to cover where the 2 smaller stripes were. It came out great. Pic below:

Exactly! I thought I was going nuts... well, I AM.. but.. yea, after I took off the stripes, I was like, "wait.. there was a 2nd, smaller, blue stripe.." heh

So.. ok, yea.. now I can look for something like the one you have heh (thanks bud!)

That looks like a 1” Navy Blue with a 1/2” gold?

It’s a 2” DARK NAVY stripe with a 1/4” gold stripe below. Make sure you get the DARK navy.

Can you tell that I ordered the wrong navy the 1st time?

Wow.. they had the exact stripe I was looking for on the multi-stripe page. Will see what they charge. If it is a stupidly crazy fee, I will go with 2 stripes.. heh

Thanks!

Did not see a 1/4", but may have to call for that small of a stripe.. heh. Did it come as a single roll, or did you have to apply them each separately?

Thanks!

You’re right. The bottom stripe is 3/4”.

They came as 2 separate stripes.

Okay, I was able to get the original blue/gold/blue stripes. Man, what a pain heh...but it is one sticker now so I will not have as hard a time lining it all up heh.

Should have them within a week.
