Default Advice, opinions wanted..

Hi all! I recently purchased a Chris Craft Stinger 312, the boat is all white with purple piping on the bolsters, sun pads, gauge bezels etc. I was contemplating having some vinyl graphics done on the sides and deck but have ditched the idea after really liking the stealth look of the all white boat (it looks longer than the actual 31') I really would like to still place the name on the boat and was all set to do it on each side when it was suggested to just do it down the middle of the deck. I sort of like the idea but have never seen a boat done that way. I am looking for opinions and input on running the name "Like A Virgin" down the middle of the deck from the fairing to the bow. It is only about a 12" - 14" wide area as the deck has anti slip material on it. Thanks in advance for any input....

What's the significance of "like a virgin" besides being an awful teeny bopper song by Madonna?

Nothing wrong with all white IMO, refreshing actually considering the many "kitchen sink" paint jobs out there.

Name the boat came with... I am guessing that because it was all white, the previous owner assimilated it to a virgin... It came up from South Florida and I am guessing it had nothing to do with the song... Maybe.. Lol!

Before anyone suggests a name change... Not gonna happen... Extremely superstitious... Lol!

No room on transom... It's on upper right side of the transom now and looks weird, only like 4" letters... I fully agree though that the side is a bad idea... Looks like the deck is the best bet... It will be upside down though if looking at it from the wrong side...lol

Well, you guys got me considering a name change... How about some suggestions.


A few friends have started the search for a new name with:
1. Pure Adrenelin
2. Aggravated
3. White Lightening
4. All Cranked Up

Any thoughts or better suggestions??
