Matt -

Do you have any recommendations for the best way to remove the orange decals from the hulls?

Thanks,
David


David: I have a 2013, so my decals weren't orange, but the front and rear ones came off really easy with a heat gun and a plastic scraper. The center one, that says "Hobie" is not removable, as far as I can tell. It seems to be molded into the hull.

Thanks Ken. I was able to remove them without trouble. I did not try to remove the "Hobie" or "Getaway" stickers. I am very happy with the way it turned out with previous generation sails and no orange hull decals. I am also pleased with the performance relative to my 2002 Getaway. I'm not sure if its the new sails, hull design change, or a combination, but the new boat is definitely faster.

Love the look with the old school sails and the orange and yellow stickers removed. I just got a 2015 T2 and the old school curl stickers had to come off. I'm not fond of the hobie diamond having to be cut for the pontoon ridge. That might have to go too. I haven't found a custom design that would work, but I'm still looking.
