I have a 2000 Formula 26 BR. This is a great boat but I am having an ongoing problem with the gold letters and the bird sumbol coming off when the boat is bounced around when tied up at the dock. I was recently at a marina and noticed a similar model to mine with no fewer than 3 letters missing. I have not been able to get any satisfaction or a satisfactory answer from the people at Formula/Thunderbird. I also have a Cobalt and the letters on this boat never come off. I would like to know if any other Formula owners have had this problem and if so how it has been dealt with.
The letters have a self-adhesive backing.You peel off the protective paper and stick them on. Formula tells me the adhesive is supplied by 3M. I don't think the ashesive works the way it should given the number of letters I have lost.
I have a 1999 34PC. The only problem I had with my letters was the gold color became discolored. They replaced them once, and the same thing happened. While the boat was out of warranty, they sent me a new set for the whole boat. The letters took some elbow grease to remove using a heat gun. It was a 3M adhesive backing.
Maybe they didn't remove the mold release wax from the factory before they applied the letters.
