Default POLL: New lettering

I finally am getting the CG Documentation all done. What do you think of this. It is designed by Sticky Fingers design. It will go on the boat next week.

Looks good but is Powerplay Racing the name of your boat or are you putting the name on the sides.

Powerplay Racing is the name of the boat. It is on the sides also.

I don't like it. If you are "in love" with the name, that's cool. My boat is named TWISTED. I wanted a name that DIDN'T imply sex or speed, but then I have a "sleeper".

I would suggest that you make the letters of the name MUCH LARGER. Mine are seven inches tall. You want people to see the name from 100 feet (or more). The letters of the home port can be much smaller.

Just my two-cents... (just remember you asked for it. )

Guys,
Thanks for all your opinions. The boat has been documented with the Coast Gurad since new in 1997, so I kep the name (Powerplay Racing) the way it is. It's on the whole side of the boat anyway.

The lettering is not on the boat yet....it's the designer's proof to see what it looks like. The letters are 4" tall (minumum by the Coast guard standards) and overall 28" long. If I go taller, it distorts the lettering. So I really can't go taller

how bout doing the lettering on the back the same as it is on the sides. outlined in color with white in the middle?

take my suggestion with a grain of salt. im half colorblind and have absolutely no artistic ability.
