Default Need killer “military veteran theme” boat wrap design help!

A buddy of mine is heavy into the military Veteran space and is looking to do a patriotic military Veteran themed boat wrap on a 42 YF. He really likes the Pelagic American flag boat wrap on the Freeman that you may have seen - so that’s an example of something he likes.

Due to location of install, the company installing the wrap has already been selected.

Does anyone have any suggestions on designers or ideas on how to best come up with a great design that links fishing with the military veteran theme?

Thanks for the feedback!

I'd look for a marine artist to try to work something out.
Carey Chen or Dennis friel are top notch

the way things are going with the military and trump, you could do a star of david flag wrap? with benjamin netanyahu catching an american soldier on a penn50, and an american tax payer getting gaffed?
but seriously, maybe some green camouflage along with the american flag.

Better yet, how bout one depicting the military getting bonuses and finally getting the respect they deserve...investors counting their earnings off a record stock market, the best Americans unified again, Trump hooked into an illegal alien with an Avet 50 and Hillary Clinton on a gaff?

I thought Trump was president now. I am a veteran and not happy with him. Don't bundle us in the same rotten basket.

Just a theme thought. Depends on your friends military background.

“Death from Above” like the Airborne slogan but with the boat graphic above and the fish below with some American flag graphics.

How about this, maybe honor the sacrifice and tradition of the military without even remotely touching on the subject of our current political climate.

WWII bomber theme with a pinup girl... always liked that look. World cat did a nice job with one late 2000's. Where are you located?

This is all beat up and you can do a better job but you get the concept

Thank you all for the great ideas. My friend lives in Florida, will be taking delivery at the YF factory in about a month, and will keep the boat near Palm Coast which is between St Augustine and Daytona.
He served in the navy and now owns a company that serves veterans of every branch of the military.

Thank you all!

I second this suggestion. Reach out to Dennis, he's done several wraps and he's a very talented artist. Dennis is also very fast in turning out your idea into a useable product.

Love the idea of a WWII pinup girl, like the name on the nose, maybe factor in the target species or something.

Just an idea.... Start at the stern with soldier or military craft from WWII and progressively display iconic military symbols from Korea, Vietnam, Iraq into present day military at the bow. As others said an artist would be a good place to start. Good luck!

And maybe add to that "We Fought for You"

Have my contender done in the oceanic gear patriot theme. Kind of like the pelagic but a little different design. I will be adding a place on the transom where we are doing a faded flag with soldiers killed in action from around home or names sent to me.

marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima, Higgins boats landing troops at Utah beach, AMTRAC’s landing on Tarawa, Riverine forces in the Mekong Delta, there are so many scenes you could incorporate along with the flag and bonds of brotherhood. I’d love to see what you come up with to honor all of our veterans.

Mission Accomplished? two words that'll haunt another president. All respect to your military, don't get me wrong.
