So, in the interest of stopping spending money.. lol.. yea right :p

Okay, we all know what a Grady looks like, right? I have seen some folks that left the stripes off the sides and they looked awesome.. very "noble". imo....

Do we really need/want Grady White in two places on each side of the boat?

I was thinking of removing the stripes, and the huge Grady White on the stern, and just replacing the Grady White on the cabin. See the attached picture.

Thoughts?

Not sure how to google that sticker :p

If the large decals are in good shape, I would keep them. They tell others from afar that you have a Grady for one and secondly, it can be a pain to remove them and clean up the goo. There may also be a 'permanent' shadow outline.
For resale , in my opinion. I would prefer the decals when buying.

Personal preference is freshen up and leave on. It adds to the lines of the Grady. I had mine off during replacement and the boat looked blah to me. It's all a personal thing. IMG_1750.JPG IMG_1751.JPG IMG_1753.JPG
