Bronze name plates ("badges") for Pacific Seacraft
I need to replace my Pacific Seacraft bronze name plates ("badges") that attach to the sides of the aft portion of the cabin trunk. I've contacted a metal artist who will cast these. Cost is $300 for the mold and the first two name plates. Each additional plate is $50. The larger the order size the lower the price-per-plate (because the initial set-up charges are distributed to more pieces). (Note: the above mentioned costs are approximate and do not include shipping or taxes).
Does anyone else need these badges?

Re: Bronze name plates ("badges") for Pacific Seacraft
Why are you replacing them if they're bronze? Bronze doesn't rust/decay/etc. On my 1990 31, they were made of pot metal and virtually disintegrated after 20 years in Florida. My son made CAD drawings and had a new set made by 3D printing in stainless steel by a company in Europe. I didn't dare ask what they cost.

Can you send a picture? My Crealock 37 doesn't have any plates.

Did you check with Pacific Seacraft?
May be they have them for sale.

I checked with Thumper about a year ago and they did not have any badges. I have a photo of the badge on a 34 or 37 (the one my son used to create a CAD drawing for my stainless model), but I can't seem to upload it. I'd be happy to email it. They are chrome over something.
