I hope this helps you.( great looking boat.)
I agree.

I picked # 2 , But personally I would not put anything on at all. That boat looks awesome, The writing on the side is taking something away from the boat. If you had a third choice to pick from that said no writing at all , I would of picked that.

I like the way you have it now, with the mirrored graphics. If anything, move them farther back, but what the hell do I know?

Actually, if this was the third choice that's the one I'd pick. Names don't mean diddly to me and at times interfere with the look of the boat. My next boat won't have a name.

Mark,
in my opinion you could re-think the lettering style first. The second one is kind of industrial looking (and too big and too far forward as was mentioned), and the first one is downright ugly. (again, my opinion ) No offense intended, that is one bad azz boat and the name should enhance it. Thing about boat lettering is, it should capture the feel of the name, so this name should have some hustle (obviously). Here are some quick thoughts.

email me if you want to discuss it. [email protected]

(I hope this post doesn't count as classified advertising- I just couldn't help myself!)

No!


There is meaning to the name. It is named after one of winningest drag teams in the 70's owned by the master-mind Austin Coil from Chicago (Chi-Town) pronounced "Shy-town"
My oldest brother used to run the local tracks and we would go to the nationals and watch.

The commercials on TV would scream "Sunday, Sunday, Sunday........

Austin Coil currently is the crew chief for John Force's team.
