Dave- it was good to finally meet you after all the close calls last year. The lettering looks great!! Someone in the Scarab forum is looking for a "beetle" for his boat. Maybe you can help. The exhaust tips sound awesome, too! Yours is probably the cleanest Scarab III I've ever seen. Now we just have to get everyone else in the water(Paul,Cordell,Troy,etc..)
BRING ON THE SUMMER!!!!!!

Did you have the paper tape or the plastic tape. I never had a problem with the paper tape unless if it was stuck to the graphic for a long time. maybe that's what happened. I usually spray application fluid on the tape and let it sit for a minute before I pull it off. If I sent it with the plastic tape. I am sorry. I got some to try it out and I wont use it again for application proposes on something that big. I had problems with it when I did the graphics on Shane's boat. I cant wait to see the photos.

Brought my boat from Port Clinton to the Commodore Club a few weeks ago. I need to get my butt up there and find out why my bildge pumps are not working. Between work, prior comitments and the weather I haven't been able to get it together.
Looking forward to meeting you.

Scarab3DMC, Great to hear that things are comming together for you. Look forward to seeing your new look and you at the CC.
