Klender design in Bay City is one of the best I've seen as far as boat graphics go.

I keep the boat on a rack in wyandotte, im wondering if i can find someone i can pay that normally does boats to come to the rack and do this.... it's not too fun to trailer this thing. unless i really have to, (havent had it on a trailer in almost 3 years)

I like the idea of vinyl so far. it seems less expensive, easier to replace if i change my mind later.. and i dont need to go too overboard with it, just the stock baja graphics suck.

You have a nice boat.....do it right. I have a feeling it will look like shit if you just slap some vinyl on it.

edit...I am not a huge fan of windshields.

IMO I have never seen one that I really like, they are ok for their intended purpose, I don't much care for production boats and their build processes at baja. I also don't like the styling or the typical baja owner, but you seem to at least have a sense of humor about it, plus if the wind blew you would kick my ass in a race, so its all good

even if i changed it to something similar to the one you showed that would make a good difference.. i would just have to incorporate the purple red and silver into the scheme to keep it matching the interior.. i like the black along the side and i'd like it to go off into checkered flags at the back.. im trying to make it look better without spending too much. operating this every day is becoming expensive enough, if you could can you pm me a rough ballpark idea on what a boat like that would cost. it's 34ft if you, obviously not a specific price just rough idea. thanks

guess that all depends on what is put on and who puts it on. My truck s vinyl and it's won awards with it! I've had a ton of people think it was paint.

yea those bass boats fly on calm water.. dont see too many limited editions without the heavy gold flake paint. (must be the non-production model) lol I only bought this boat because i got a great price on it and i worked out trades too.. but it's a great mix of a offshore/cruiser i love it. does well on the big water, i was at about 74mph going around belle isle on the way home... with 4 of us on it and 3/4 tank of gas

Im not a fan of the way windshields look when my boat is parked. but i love them in the spring/fall I had a 1999 288 sunsation intimidator before this, i loved that boat, but i froze my face on a cool fall or spring evening coming in.. or when it rained coming back from put-in-bay
