Ok thanks oldlure was curious and intrigued is all. The 2 rectangular badges on front of my boat had nothing on them when I got boat. I always thought the boat registration or serial numbers was what was on them. I know now that s/n was on transom and feathercraft emblems on front plates. I guess the artist will have to come out of me after paint.

Curious with regards to “vagabond” emblem, do you guys know was there a “ranger” emblem? What did it look like if there was , ive noticed a couple emblem designs for different models but not seen one for ranger.

Other folks in here will know about any logos, I don‘t. I assume you’re aware that the logo I have created below is just my design and has nothing to do with any historical logos.

I do not believe Canadian Feather Craft Fleet used any other emblems other than the feather emblem.
US models did have different emblems during the years for various models. Mid '50s used the round decal and later '50s had a capacity tag.
This round decal came from Bikecop1

Beautiful work Jaque. Curious why you painted the under belly...for speed in the water or aesthetics?

Hey Scoot, one of the Previous owners had sanded the bottom with something like 60 grit, rivets and all. I also had a fairly large hole I had to weld. I did not want to sand it further to get it smooth, so I decided to paint it. I think for this old girl that’s had a pretty hard life this was the best option.

Very nice!  I like the adaptation of your logo for being 'punched out' like that. You might need to add a Merc tower to it though. ;)
