Does anyone know where I can get two "Ocean Yachts" raised side emblems?

Call South Jersey marina @ the canyon club. Ask for the parts manager. I don't remember his name , but he was the purchasing agent for Ocean from 1977-2009. He maybe able to help you on where they had them made.
Sorry I mean the Canyon Club parts department...in south jersey..Cape May.
thank you. I called the number on the Egg Harbor Group FB Page and ordered them. they were $110 Each
Same price I paid direct from Ocean in 2015 just before the when out of biz. I wonder if they just wound up with a bunch of inventory along with the molds, etc.
Prospective - how are these attached on the 43? Just adhesive, or is there somethong like a female threaded post. I have no access to the backs without removing salon paneling
If they are like my 38SS they are fastened through the back . I removed mine by working a very thin putty knife behind the letters until the inserts popped out of the letters , then ground the studs flush . I reinstalled the letters by drilling countersinking and #4 oval head screws . Be sure to use a sealant on the screw threads or you will be wallpapering , ask me how I know !
They are fastened from behind. I didn't have the courage to start pulling down my interior so I just pried the old ones off (don't recall that being difficult) and used so 5 minute epoxy to fasten the new ones on. Sadly my "new" emblems which are on their 4th season are already beginning to tarnish. The emblems I got for my old Tiara had a much higher quality finish and were attached with 3m tape which was already applied to the emblem. But I didn't see a way to afix tape to the back of these.
Mine attached from the inside, 2 round head screws. They were tarnished so I gold leafed and clear coated. Still looking great 5yrs in.
