Does anyone know where I can get Turbo decals?

I recently rescued my father's H14T from going to the dump. My mother convinced my dad that it was destroyed beyond repair after Hurricane Ivan hit Pensacola, FL. It did have a smashed left hull, both side rails bent, a broken rudder blade, parted shrouds and completely torn tramp but it was the boat my dad took me out on during the summer and I couldn't let it die a sad death in the dump.

After months of searching, I finally found a donor H14 that had significant problems of its own but exactly opposite of mine. Six weeks ago we took her out for her (which we have named Knot Flying since I fixed it in my spare time while I am going through Navy flight training) post-Ivan maiden voyage and sailed as if nothing ever happened (my dad even admitted that it sailed "slightly" better than before).

I am now working on the cosmetics of the boat. I call my dad to come over to inspect the progress on regular basis. He voiced to me the other day that he had a 14 before there was a Turbo model and that when the turbo came out he and his dad sold the first one to get the one we have now. He loved the Turbo decals put on the bow and was very proud of his boat. I told him that there is no way to get new Turbo decals and I am hoping to surprise him when I put them. I hope someone can help me out!

I just ordered custom ones made from a guy who had some basic Hobie Cat stickers on EBay. I just asked him to custom make what I wanted. I did this with stickers on my airplane and was very happy with what they did.

Here's a pic of the decal from one of my parts boats, also an '83. Every factory turbo that I have owned with the H16 style dolphin striker had the decal below the HC logo near the stern.
