Horseshoe

Does anyone know where to get those Horseshoe Buoys that have the name of the boat painted on them?? I cant seem to find a website that personalizes them. THANKS!

Try a stencil and some paint. Works for us.

Bad News,

If you try to get one and your boat's name is TITANIC, your'e without luck.

The originals cost a fortune!!! and that movie guy (Cameron???) took all the ones that floated!!

Our port & starboard horseshoes have a sewn in Sunbrella patch with the boat name embroidered by the prior owner. He had it done when upholstering all the boat's interior/exterior cushions, along with True Blue embroidered on all interior throw pillows, bath/hand towels, wheel covers and foulies.

One of the perks of the sale - even glassware and cocktail napkins are embossed. There's no mistaking what the boat name is.

This is a pre-purchase photo, before teak refinishing and overall cleanup:

TB I can't upload photos into the post, I keep getting a upload fail message in the little window that opens. Obviously you had no trouble, any ideas why?

You need to have the photo hosted by a website other than SailNet. I use www.photobucket.com a free photo hosting site, but I first resize the photos in my Photoshop software, to no larger than 700 pixels (fits most computer monitors) and 80 pixels/inch - for faster loading by the dial-up users.

I did check the size, less than 600X400 and 97mb, but still. I was able to do it until the 23rd December. Something wrong,
