4/2/2019 Update: NO LONGER AVAILALBE. I'm leaving this post for history only. We do not have a resource for these side graphics.

-Keith


************************************************************************************************

Through a well respected icon in the industry, I was introduced to Al Thomas who, after working in the industry for decades, has meticulously recreated side graphic and stern decals for the follow Correct Craft models and years (Note: up until 1984 these side graphics were painted on originally):



1975 - 1979 Ski Tique

1974 - 1979 Ski Nautique -- without 1/8th pinstripe

1974 - 1979 Ski Nautique -- with 1/8th pinstripe

1982 - 1984 Ski Nautique (white decal to be applied over re-painted stripes)

1985 - 1987 Ski Nautique (no drop shadow)

1986 - 1987 Barefoot Nautique (no drop shadow)



Through CCF, we are now offering these graphics for purchase. The price is $550/graphic set plus shipping (with a percentage going towards support of CCF). They are available in virtually any color (including the original colors). Turnaround time is 3-4 business days from order to ship.



I will be adding these side graphics as products in the CCF store shortly. In the mean time, if you are interested please email me at mailto:Keith@CorrectCraftFan.com" rel="nofollow - Keith@CorrectCraftFan.com .



Below is a sample graphics package, how it would look when it arrived to you.

I am very excited to be offering these side graphics through CCF. Making it easier to restore these boats back to their original glory is always the objective.



Thank you as always for your support of CorrectCraftFan.com.

Too cool Keith. any pics of these on a boat. I would take the 82' does the stripes come with it? How do you keep the gas from ruining the decals when it comes our of the overflow in the back?

Keith,
     Your off on the years for painted graphics as they were painted (except for the pinstripes, and 2001 decal) up until at least 1984. So what exactly do you have available for the 82-84, all the stripes with the Ski Nautique cut out and in the stock tri color pattern? If so I got some serious wet sanding to do .. .

Joe,
I have edited my original post to correct my mistake. According to Al, for the 1982-1984 Ski Nautique people typically repaint the stripes solid along the entire side of the boat and then apply a white decal over them. He assured me the paint does not show through the white decal.

I also updated the 85-87 Ski and Barefoot Nautiques listings to note that those graphic packages, unfortunately, do not include the drop shadow.

The graphics I put together for the 80-81 don't include the stripes. I had them ready but decided to paint instead. Hopefully Al can put that together for others, seems there's quite a few restoring those years right now. $550 for a full set is cheap considering the time that goes into setting it up for cutting.

wonder if the 75-79 SN lettering is the same height and style as the 80-81 looks pretty close to me?, then all you would have to do is the stripes.

Paint the main stripe (wedge shape) to match the color and then apply white vinyl lettering and stripes over that. Creating the stripes wouldn't be that hard couple measurements maybe.

Put seriously Pete hasn't said a word? surely he hasn't over looked the thread?

This is a bummer. Is there a reason this can't be done?

Also the thread is "Side graphics"...however in the example it clearly shows transom graphics as well. So for instance on an 85' would a package include the side "Ski Nautique", "2001", and the "Correct Craft Competition Ski Boat"?

Yes, The PO had them made in vinyl by a guy who did mostly truck trailers. Regrettably he went under before the PO could get the file from him. I must say for not being original (not paint) that it does look very good. Probably because of the added black border mimicking the shadow effect.

Since Al has gone to the extent of developing these graphic files, he certainly can cut a Gerber mask with the same for those who want to go with the original paint.

BTW, when the time comes for me to have to restore the graphics on my Tique, I will do it in paint!!!!

The $550 is for a complete set of graphics (including the stern graphics and the '2001' for those years). For the 85-87 there is no drop shadow. I'm working with Al to see about adding the shadow.

OK, so I might be slightly biased because I have an '88 Ski Nautique that needs new decals and I know for a fact decals are no longer available, at least from the factory for that year (or 89 or 90). Yes, there are a few dealerships around the country that have them, but the price they want for a set is enough to make me nauseous.

I suspect the up front investment in getting them designed is probably steep, but I would have to believe that whomever is willing to take the plunge up front to get them done right could make a killing selling them to others in need (hint, hint, nudge, nudge). So, please, add these years to the lineup!! There is demand out there!!!


Posted By: SNobsessed
Date Posted: February-08-2009 at 10:06am
I foresee buying a set for our '89 in the future, although I don't need them yet.

Keith, can you ask Al what the development cost will be for these (88-90) years? Then we can figure out what lot size we need to cover that tooling cost.

http://www.correctcraftfan.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=10598&KW=barefoot+decals - This is where we left off on the 88-90 graphics.

Al, incase you weren't aware this is how the originals were made.

Originally posted by buddym buddym wrote:

Now the original decals were screen printed. For those that dont know, a screen has to be built to size for each color. Then NAZDAR UV inks are spread across clear decals to make the final product. The screens can not be used for anything else and are typically stored for one year or so in case there is a reorder. Our screen printer has several thousand masters stored in a separate warehouse In this case, the price for the screens alone is north of $1,000.

Please show this to you sign guy. He sounds like someone that I would like to know. Ask him to check with his screen printer and see what he would charge, including markup, as a screen fee.


Swiper had his graphics remade and they look like they came out pretty nice and at a "cheap" price. He didn't provide details on how they were done, you'd have to contact Ryan at http://www.vinylgraphics.net/ - www.vinylgraphics.net

Ok so if we want to paint can we get a gerber mask or can they painter stick them on paint the strip over them and then pull them off..if that makes sense?

That does make sense, or you could paint the stripes sold and put a white decal over them.

I am in the process of re-doing the vinyl on my 1986 2001. I started by taking pictures of the sides of my own boat and then recreating the logo in Adobe Illustrator as Vector art. I figured that this was a way to recreate the vinyl and have it match my current graphics exactly. I know that many of the users here like to restore their boats to the original. However, mine has a tower and many other customizations which I am too lazy to re-post here after the2001.com has been offline for a while now. I'm going to put Air Nautique on the boat, but in the original font and style.







Basically, A friend gave me his vinyl cutter and I have done a few test cuts as show below. I ordered some 3 Mil 5 year Vinyl and am waiting for spring to apply. Now I'm thinking that I should have ordered a thicker vinyl. Anyone have an opinion?

Ok Keith hopefully the last question. How do we keep the gas over flow from ruining the new paint? When I had the vinyl graphics put on(big mistake) the gas just screwed it all up. Does the paint not have that issue of does it need to be re gelcoated afterwards?

Might as well start getting him ready to 1990 to 2000 - It won't be long before those requests start coming in.


Some newer plotter/cutters have ink jet capabilities. I don't know how durable and fade resistant they are. They could do multi color and effects.

They aren't. It's the reason my vinyl sign maker recommended to use the more expensive printing method when I had the "since 1925" decals made. 3M inks guaranteed for 7 full years in direct sun.

Hi Keith. Michael Giddings here, I would really like to talk with you about your graphics for the 1975 Ski Nautique. I am refurbishing mine and have no other source for the graphics that I can find. I am really excited to have found yours. My original graphics were painted on and were burgundy in color. Please e-mail me a way to contact you at mgiddings1@cfl.rr.com Or possibly contact me through CorrectCraftfan.com Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi guys, this is Al Thomas, i am the one Keith mentioned about the 70's and 80's style hull decals. I fell off the planet after a bad divorce, and i am back. Don't know if someone else has reproduced these decals, but wanted to let Keith know i am available. I have the exact replacement hull decals in full sets. I am renegotiating prices, tough economy, will answer questions. Can send photos of done boats, i have been doing restorations for over 15 years. Mine are not photo generated, they were traced to exact size on tracing paper then digitized at my expense over 15 years. I was a Nautique Dealer. When you take your letters off there is a ghosting effect, that is why you need exact sizing or you will see the difference plain as day. Unless you comepletely re-gelcoat your boat. Keith, would love to hear from you. Thanks.

Also wanted to let you know i have the decals under windshiels on late 80's boats on the deck. Also there has been questions of damage do to gas from the fuel vent. Decals are the best quality and are not damaged if wiped off soon. I fixed this problem by re-configuring the fuel vent hose to stop fuel from continually coming out, easily done, can explain. No drop shadow at this time, but am working on it. I assure you the decals look perfect even without the shadow. I have done plenty over the years, no complaints. IMHO Al

Hi guys, mike888 here. I have been searching for some way to restore the graphics on my restoration project. I found al thomas through ccf.com. In my zeal to express my joy at finding some sort of answer, I have appeared to some members to be advertising for someone, or something. Please note that this is NOT the case. I found one possible solution to a problem that I have been researching on ccf.com rather publicly. I would love to paint the graphics per the purity of the restoration if some one can offer an appropriate template. Otherwise I will use whatever is currently available.
To anyone I may have offended, my sincere apology. pull hard y'all.

I would imagine that if someone can cut the graphics out of vinyl, it wouldnt be any harder for them to cut out the inverse for a template to paint. Might be worth asking the question.

Yes, The PO had them made in vinyl by a guy who did mostly truck trailers. Regrettably he went under before the PO could get the file from him. I must say for not being original (not paint) that it does look very good.

Al, Have you made any decals & stripes yet for the 1980 Ski Nautique? I'm in the market for a set.   


Not at this time, ( original ) but if i get a big enough need.... i will try. I had a 80 SNK way back when, blue, what a good looking boat. Alot of memories. Thanks for your interest.

LOL, I was wondering how long it would take before someone brought that up!

80tique, have you checked the reference section? Alan supplied the file that he used to repaint the graphics on his '81, which is available to download. You may need to mask the stripes yourself with tape.

Good morning all. I have been reading the response posts to my humble inquiry as to the availability of graphics for our style of vessels. Over the few weeks I have been doing this I have observed some rather disturbing trends. The obvious vehemence by some members toward anything but the purist approach is disheartening. I joined this site in the hopes of finding people of similar taste and culture. In some I see that, in others just public petty bickering.
My intention was never to spawn this style of dialog, but to find a resource for restoring my boat. This project of mine has been going on both in my mind and in reality for quite some time. Back when Southeast Correct Craft was still in Pine Castle, I was talking with Woody about these graphics for my boat. His knowledge of these vessels is extensive. The factory does not support these graphics. Some one in an earlier post mentioned the asian painters. He is exactly correct. These folks painted these graphics almost by free hand.
Having said all of this, I wish to thank the people who have responded with positive feedback on this subject. I have new insite of what can be done with the new resources herein discussed. Thanks. Pull Hard Y'all

As far as the purist approach goes, I figure if you dont find someone here who voices a "keep it original" opinion, youre not going to find one anywhere. No one cares more for these boats that we do- and many feel that theyre the best in their original form. You'll notice that the longer someone has been around these boats, the more likely they are to appreciate originality vs. individuality... we've seen it over and over. Its not an opinion that should be easily dismissed- but of course its your boat so youre welcome do to whatever you want!

As far as the bickering goes, have you ever been to a family reunion? Think of it the same way. This site has spawned countless personal get togethers between members, I know Ive made many great personal friends here. Thus, its not uncommon for formalities to be tossed by the wayside... which is not always a bad thing.

Yea Timmy's like my Brotha from Another Motha and Hollywood is like my Cousin Eddie

Welcome back Al, wrapped one of those up myself back in July, only took 5.9 years, WTF, happy to have that (and her) behind me!

Regarding the decals, It certainly sounds like having the digital artwork is more then half the battle, perhaps these graphic packages should be made available/listed in either scenario whenever possible, "Vinyl Decals" or "Gerber (Paint) Mask", leaves the choice where it should then be, in the owners hands.

Yea, that seems like the best idea. I have a complete set cut for my 79 SNK with 1/8th pinstripe at the vinyl shop right now. I stopped them before they weeded them out for vinyl graphics for my boat. I wanted to see if it was possible to simply weed out the reverse which would make them a stencil. But i'm sure you have already read Tim's post.
I am moving forward with offering them in vinyl form and already have sold some. I have been selling these for over 10 years and they work out great.
I was asked by Keith to offer these on this site, but i didn't realize that it would offend the purists ( only a few ). The guys i can help are calling me, the purists can do their boat any way they want. My 79 SNK is a good sound boat that my kids can drop in and use. And it will look great with vinyl graphics. I like every CC i see out on the water.   Thanks

I'm doing a total restoration on a 1988 Ski Nautique 2001. The decal for this year consists of small squares, I found the side Ski Nautique decal from Nautiqueparts.com but he didn't have the "2001" in stock. I am interested in that decal as well at the "Correct Craft Competition Ski Boat" decal for the back of the boat. If need be, I will purchase the entire set. Can you help?

Does anyone have pictures of these decals on a 78 nautique? Do they cover the painted strips without any old paint showing?

Thanks

Mike your 76 has painted graphics using Rustoleum paint. I am going to redo mine with paint, it will be a Chore to do but will last a long time once done. There are lots of threads about it here, good luck.

Mike, i am pretty sure i already talked to you but wanted to refresh our conversation.
I have for sale 2 choices:

A stencil set for the 70's series boats so you can "PAINT" original grafix on hull. This stencil set cuts your labor hours considerably if you decide to paint.

I also have these sets in vinyl decals, any color, original measurements, not picture generated, exact as from Correct Craft.

I have both sets with or without 1/8 pinstripe, all letters, all stripes complete.
Thanks, Al    1-904-813-5597 cell

how do I start inquiring on some of these graphics?
is there any method to get just the accurate digital data for these?
I have a close friend who makes vinyl wraps for pickups and we would like to do some experimenting w/ the colors and pinstripes.
Thanks for help!

Al, are you out there? I am going to work on my graphics over the winter and wanted to know if your stencil is still available?

Reviving this thread 6 years later, I'm hoping to get a stencil for my 1976 SN. Most likely going to have the boat re-gelled and then the graphics painted on.

Fingers crossed you're still out there, Al.

**EDIT** Admins, think we could get this moved to the General Discussion forum for greater visibility?
