It's been bothering me for a while now, but haven't gotten around to asking till now. My boat seems to have had 3 original decals on the transom. One is fairly faded and just looks bad. The other is completely gone other than the translucent vinyl base of the decal, though you really can't see it well in the photo. Personally, I really don't care for informational or sponsorship type decals on the body of boats, or vehicles for that matter, unless they're all-out race cars/ boats. So I'd be perfectly fine with just removing them all together. However, with my boat this causes a bit of a problem in that it's evidently been exposed to direct sun quite a bit and has discolored the gel. In person with even average light the area under the clear decal is a bright white, easily 3 or 4 shades lighter than any surrounding, exposed gel. I'm guessing the other decal will be the same. Obviously I've got to replace them unless I want to re-gel the entire boat, which I'm not prepared to do at this point.
Question is, does anyone know what the decal on the right is and if I can still find either one of them out there somewhere?

I can’t really make it out with that picture. Shape and size?

The one on the right is roughly square, about the same size as the other. Don't have access to the boat right now to measure but I'd guess about 7 x 7 +/-

I've pulled up at least 20 pictures of various years of the NWZ hull and not a single one has had either decal, this is why I thought someone on the forum may be able to identify them for me.

Previous owner may have just put those 2 on there. Usually just the 1 square one on the back and 2 rectangular ones on each hull side. I have the files at my local decal shop but have also traded files/decals to Christine's and NautiqueParts.
E-mail me and I'll also ask about your PEF Plaque.... Do you have one for your boat??

Not stock decals
guess I should say there were no stickers on the back like that stock.

I’m drawing a blank with the 7x7 decal. The Singapore decal was common but typically on the sides.

Yeah, I'm thinking one of the PO's added them. Still the dilemma remains.... got to find something even if it's temporary because that super white spot is very noticeable in normal light. I'll probably just find something close for that one, maybe both.
