YES DEAR w/uplifting eyes above the R. It has saved our marriage for 22yrs. and beyond. Now that we have a 39ft. Pearson in the Solomons pictures can be taken after I get the name put on it. It was my adventure buying it in St.Pete and bringing it down the Gulf through Marathon, FL then up to the Solomons, MD. Even went through many storms and a lightning strike just to test the boat and crew. Came through it with no harm to boat or crew but God Bless my insurance with Boat US-CNA. They replaced just about every electronics on it.

I'm still a few weeks away from actually getting our next boat, but we've selected a name and played a little with design on Island Boat Lettering's website. The color scheme is selected to match the mid-90s Catalina stripes (midwatch blue and turquoise). If anyone has any suggestions for other lettering companies, please PM me with suggestions. Is this something where "non-boat" signmakers would give more attractive prices? If so, where do you suggest? Also, I am not sure whether to insert any clipart into my logo - haven't found one I really like. Can anyone suggest something that might match up with the name?

How about a saxophone or some musical notes...this is based on the guess that Take Five is from the Brubek quartet piece...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Good idea. The jazz tune is one of the multiple entendres relevant to me and my family. But as an accomplished trumpet player, my trumpet playing buddies would never forgive me for putting a lowly saxophone on my boat. So I need to find something else.

I did find this cute logo on some community college's website. I could not find what its context was, or any info on rights restrictions:


If i used it, I would consider changing the grey clock to a faded turquoise color to match the Catalina trim colors.

That's a hideous logo IMHO. The clock is badly designed, since any real clock with hands placed like that would not FUNCTION.

So put a trumpet in the background with notes coming out of the end of it... and have one of the notes be the dot in the i of Five...

OK Guys and Girls ... let's get it straight!!!!! Take Five was written by Paul Desmond (credit where credit due ... although performed by the Brubeck Quartet)

Also ... if you are going to use a musical instrument as a logo, use a SAX ... Desmond is a Alto Saxophonist and the song definitely featured this instrument!!!!!

DUH... I never said Brubeck wrote it..but if it wasn't for Brubeck, no one would have heard of it.

Also, I suggested a saxophone earlier...but the person who has the boat named Take Five doesn't like the Sax.
