Purchased our 2004 RL210 early summer and the factory graphics were in bad need of some help so I reached out to a friend from my days in the printing industry. He came by my place and photographed and measured the factory stripes. He was able to replicate them on his computer then add modern gradient color fades and recreate a excellent better than new set of graphics with matching registration numbers. the new graphics are 3M material made to last a long time with film laminate. I've included before and after picturesIMG_1714.jpgIMG_1767.jpg

Nice looking 210! Good to see others of these classic Bennington glass boats. Not many around, particularly in Tennessee. So what lake are you on?

My 210, also a 2004, is the sport model, meaning instead of the graphics, I have a large red body panel bow to stern below the hull/deck seam line. Matches the red striped interior.

I’m on center hill lake. Sure would like to have that ski pole!

I have the same graphics issue with my 04 RL210. Can you put me in touch with your graphics guys? Thanks!

Thanks, I texted him today. I also ordered a new windshield, new reg numbers and have an awesome detailer scheduled. The instrument panel is in bad shape. Not sure if I'll try to find a new one or just paint this one. Thanks again for the help!

The super sport models of our rl210s came with a silver plastic dash rather than plastic wood. Just saying...
Also, every once in awhile you will find one on eBay.

Great, My stripes are brown on top blue on bottom, looks like yours are the opposite. Hopefully he can get you some new graphics
