    Submitting the final art renders for everyone's approval. Special thanks to YF's Mike Kajan for his digital penmanship! I haven't finalized fonts for the slogans, but here's the lines I've chosen...

    YF: We Know Big Boats!

    JF: In Thrust We Trust!


    The JetForums slogan is a done deal, but I'm not sure on the YachtForums slogan, so I'm open to suggestions.

    YF & JF logos will be on the front of the shirts. Still a few weeks away from screen printing. Hoping to start shipping shirts in November/December; work load pending.

    Sizes and special requests at a later date. For now, just want your approval on the art work and alternate slogan suggestions...

    Here's the artwork for YachtForums...

    I like the the slogan... I would like to present two other slogans though:
    "YF: The online yachting place to be!"

    "YF: Yachts anchor here!"

    Disco you are pretty creative today!

    YF Slogan

    Maybe some variation of one of the forum tag lines?

    e.g. for General Yachting Discussion you've got: Talkin' Big Boats that Belch Black Smoke!

    Admittedly, belching smoke is probably not the right image, but as an example, you could shorten it to Big boats that belch smoke!

    or for Motor Yachts, you've got: Mortal Yachts, Mega Yachts and Mortgage the Mall Yachts!

    It seems like some variation of that might work...

    YF: Everything from Mortal Yachts to Mega-Yachts!

    Actually I thought you already had a slogan:

    "Your online waypoint!" which I think is pretty good!

    The previous Yacht Forums t-shirts was rather nice and classy without sneding a "message", funny or otherwise..

    I wore mine to boat shows and other gala events :D but it died a little while ago, sure would like another if any of the old stock is left. 6'2", 220 lbs, X-tra Large..

    Dag,

    I've got three XL polo's left over, but I'm saving two of them for editorial crew (current or future) that join me at the shows. One has Tom Serio's name on it because he's worn out his YF shirt while working. If you send me a reminder when I start shipping T-shirts, I'll throw in that extra polo shirt.

    I'd say go with the "online waypoint" slogan. :)

    I really liked Dave's suggestion... "Take a Bow. Mine's Bulbous", but I'm afraid not everyone will 'get it'.

    Then, there was Old Phart's suggestion... "Phonies Beware". I like that too, but it's not really descriptive enough.

    Let me tell you why I came up with the slogan "We Know Big Boats"...

    We = Collective
    Know = Knowledge
    Big Boats = Yachts

    I think "We Know Big Boats" sums up everything nicely, in four short words.

    And here's what it looks like...
