Logo scanned for decorative purposes

Post by Georg Weinstabl » Fri Dec 11, 2009 10:59 pm

Hi,

Like most runabouts Chris Craft and Riva had polished chrome banners or logos on their starboard and portside. I tried to pick-up some of them and are playing with some decorative works to do something similar for my boat. Here is a logo of a Volga automobile scanned, you may use for decoration of your boat. Maybe there is something you like to use for your boat(s), too.

Hi,

This is the background under the plexiglass doom of the steering wheel. The plexiglass doom if pushed triggers the horn.

The Volga logo itself is place higher than the back ground throughing a shadow, to give the 3D image of it.
The idea is stolen from Riva boats. A sample will follow!


Enjoy...

Hi,

Those boats like ChrisCrafts or Rivas have badges on their siding. These were also seen on some of the old Volgas. In the end of seventies I think this enthusiasm about branding was aborted ... So my '86 came naked and only some type shields were indicating that it is a Volga. Reason enough to revive this feature and this with a Logo grabbed from a volga car. Rest is my phantasy ... maybe yours as well. I will have some produced for my boat. I'll let you know what they cost... maybe someone else needs some too. I believe it makes the boat more original even if they are as fake as my Bulgari watch and my DuPont lighter. :wink:
