This mock-up was so convincing that everybody thought I had already lettered the wrong boat !!!

The 170 Montauk that I actually lettered has a red Whaler logo.

22k Florentine Gold, no outline

The shimmering vividness of gold is difficult to capture in an indoor photo.  In any case, a slight variation in the light source or position of the viewer causes a different sparkle.

Note that additional "richness" of the gold has been achieved by cutting out the letters in random order, and then placing them on the boat in proper order.  This extra effort individualizes the letters - not like they had been cut and transfered directly from a single sheet.
