Version 2.0, special thanks to Marin for pointing out the erroneous information on the original plaque. His knowledge saved me from what could have been a pretty embarrassing situation with my history major daughter!

Everything on your boat is broken...you just don't know about it yet.

There you go. You've averted another dust-up between Malaysia and Singapore and created a very cool and creative source of information about your boat. Our builder's plate is in its original location which is fine on our physically bone stock boat, but it would be fun to frame it in a more interesting way. Well, not a more interesting way because American Marine didn't frame it at all.

Very nice, Boyd. I think you are on to something, even for those of us whom don't have plaques. A small wooden doodad with the basic history would be very cool. The lettering is very smart. I'm going to give it some thought...

Can you laser aluminum plate?
