First, I really appreciate SD's efforts to help me out, even if I don't end up using his suggestion this time. And I do know that Paul Desmond both composed and performed the original tune with Dave Brubek's quartet. I had previously thought about a trumpet but came to exactly the same conclusion - it is the wrong instrument for this tune. And while having a sax would therefore be appropriate for the song, the sax has absolutely no connection to me and actually misleads the observer over the true meaning of the boat's name.

And therein lies the problem with a graphic. For a name that hits home on a number of levels (which is what makes it a perfect name for us) any graphic that emphasizes one meaning over the others obscures the many hidden meanings.

So I think I will just stick with a nice font without a graphic.

Just bought our boat.... since it was purchased with 'home equity' loan, was thinking... "Equity" across the stern.

Oooo, the frustrated advertising mogol in me loves to critique graphics!

Heaving aside realistic clock issues, I actually rather like the design. The graphic is subtle, which is nice. I would suggest re-doing the hands to be centered like a real clock though.

Unless you are trying to emphasize the "Five" over the "Take", a single font works better than two. Of the two, the "Five" is more interesting. The other one is so fat and upright it's kinda harsh, like bolded letters.

I mentioned in a previous post why I've decided not to use any graphic at all, aside from the lettering for the name. I also mentioned that I found this graphic somewhere on the web, so the designer is not going to see your suggestions.

This is now:



The T that you can't quite see is the Tartan symbol.

My plans for the (near?) future is something like this:

I'd point out that the clock like image is badly flawed... I've never seen one where the hands were not at least somewhat centered..

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 thread. I'll have to get a shot of our stern to add here.
