Would anyone know where I could find a Caribbean emblem like the one below. I tried to find someone to make a new one but the price tag was north of $500!

Archie Spooner (deceased) was the founder of International Marine and Caribbean in VIC.

You could try ringing his Son, Rod and ask if he recalls who made their emblems originally?  (scroll down to: "Spooner" in this link below)

I never ended up getting any printed, other interests and lack of money prohibited me from getting that far. I would have loved to get some made but I didn't get the chance. I was going to use a website called shapeways, they print a lot of different materials. metalized plastics and a whole bunch more.

 I'll get a hi-res imagine of mine before the boat leaves and try and model it up for you.

Yeah, well giving away (they weren't really in a state to ask much for them). hopefully the next person can complete them. He was a boat builder early in his younger days so hopefully he can breath some life into them. One day I'll buy another that doesn't need as much work.
