Mitcher T's awesome work

Did you know that Mitcher T will also do vinyl boat lettering for your boat?

You have to beg, grovel and brown-nose him, but as you might expect; his work is awesome.

He found some time in his busy schedule to make some beautiful letters and a theme for the back of my boat. Sorry, the pics aren't better color but they were taken at the end of the day in the driveway right before we put the cover back on the boat..

ps: mitcher.....they went on perfectly...

Looks great! Does the name refer to the boat, or GEB?? Works either way. Nothing like a double duty name.

Sunsation 32. Mitcher painted my Sunsation 288 which was sold to forum member Splinter. Karen (Greeneyedbeacher) and I have had the pleasure of meeting Mitcher T and taking him and one of his employees out for some great Maryland steamed crabs early in this past summer. He's a great guy and his work is exceptional.

The name "American Beauty". Karen and I thought (not fought) long and hard over this name.

We wanted something patriotic without seeming "trendy" or exploitive. The paint scheme on the boat is stars & stripes and names like "The Patriot", "Patriot Games" just didn't seem appropriate. We wanted a name as timeless as the paint job.

We really do love the paint job because the boat is a conversation piece and gives us lots of opportunity to meet new people wherever we go because they always come up and talk to us.

We love the name we picked and we love the job that Mitcher T did. As Mitcher T said in a previous post, this was his second set of letters he made for the boat. Stupidity on the part of yours truly and a windy day led to their prompt demise....

he's a great guy...
