So after a long trial/error saga with a cooky business owner, I finally have the Skagit Hull ID plates reproduced. Close to the original. It took several, several visits to get the design to this point. As of right now, I won't be making anymore changes, even though I still see some small details that could be better.

The one I did for my '58 Express Hardtop is in the picture. If you want/need one made and know your HULL ID number, let me know via the private messages. All things considered, they won't be expensive (or what I perceive as expensive). I set out to ensure my Hardtop is done right, not to make money on these. While I like things to be original, this is as close as I can get to the real deal. That's just me, I don't judge you or your boat if you have your own flavor etc....

If you can make one better, please do as I'd like to see what others may come up with if they choose.

A big thanks to BruceB. for letting me borrow an original plate from another Skagit.

Here's the new plate:

Here's a few different versions I had to go through to get to the point above...I even attempted my own aging/patina process on a few extras.
