Bluffer,
I like the paint job. It will be really funny when you're pedaling past the paddle kayaks and they can't keep up with you.

Not painted on, those are decals. Gonna add some exhuast pipe duals to angle back to resemble headers for when Im just playing in it. Gotta get the turbo fins also & my "hotrod" is complete!

That is awesome looking!! Where does one get decals that will work on their OB or any yak? I'd love to have a couple made up for my brother & I.. to put our 'family name' on them. :D

The guy that did it for me owns a sign co. Sandbar signs (361-939-9830)
Dunno if has a website, will check.

He has a machine that cuts them out.
Way it works is, 1st he takes a pic of your yak, car, boat or anything. Then puts the pic on the puter & has all this different graphics software where he can add, move-around, change colors, lettering style on the computer ect. This way you can see how its gonna look before the decals get cut from large rolls on the machine.

Can do mutiple colors also. If you look close the flames have a black border around it. Thats acually a slightly smaller red decal on a black decal. Pretty cool, gives your yak that personalized look.

That's pretty slick... I'll have to keep an eye for you next time we're down in Corpus (around Thanksgiving). With luck, I'll be able to "borrow" the shop's Adventure in case the wind doesn't blow.

Bluffer,
Your signature quote, I believe, originated in Homer, Alaska. It's on a bunch of ball caps and other tourist stuff. "A quaint little drinking village with a drinking problem." I assumed you found the quote there.
