    Still waiting on the title search but I bought a 2011 AR240 which has peeling decals all over. (black hull with red decals).

    Any links for decent replacements? I actually like to purchase the "twin engine" and "high output" decals in orange rather than the stock red. (Go Tigers!).

    I do not like the "stripe" so I'd like some opinions on a different style decal. (Giant yamaha symbol? 2' high?)

    @LukePrinsloo I noticed no one ever responded to your question. This model specific section can be a little quiet.
    If you’re looking for stock and if they are still available check out www.yamahapartsonline.com, babbits and lots of other sites that sell OEM parts.
    But, why put decals on at all? Do what me and others on this forum did and go all black. I think leaving off the graphics makes the boat look longer in the water. I love the clean look.

    @AZ Native I am going to be clean below the belt line (rub rail) However my twin engine and high output decals are done on one side of the boat.

    I did the same thing @AZ Native and many others did and went all black. You cant buy the replacement decals anymore for the side of the boat (that I know of). However, Babbit's had all the replacement decals and emblems to replace whatever else you need to... Except the "TWIN ENGINE" decal. I recently replaced the "HIGH OUTPUT" decal and the "LIMITED S" and "242" emblems on the side of the boat... All from Babbit's

    I stripped the decals on mine and had some new registration numbers, 242LS and name cut in brushed aluminum.. I think it updates it pretty good..

    I like the embossed "242 LS" on the side... It does make it look like a newer style boat!:thumbsup:
