Default Transom Pictures

My wife and I are arguing about lettering for our boat. We have denamed and are giving her a new name. We have a 1998 3000 SCR and if you have any pictures of your transom lettering, we would love to see it. The 3000 SCR is really broken up at the transom and we didn't really like what we had before.

Boat US has a wide variety of fonts to choose from. We measured our transom, ordered the name and installed ourselves. The online graphics tool allows you to play with fonts and sizes, even slants, gradients and shadowing until you find what you like and what would work for you. I strongly suggest measuring the area first and getting an idea of the dimensions of the area you would have your name before using the tool. When you select fonts and a name it will give you the height and width according to the aspect ratio.
