I need graphics designer to design a boat name decal for the transom of our boat

Contest Brief

Boat name: Glory Days
Can anyone come up with something creative and contemporary for a boat name decal design? Text and a simple graphic in a creative layout.
Graphic ideas: The name is a song title (music-related graphic?) but also thinking it can be some sort of sun pattern graphic. Or something else is fine too. If text font is creative/unique, maybe a graphic is not needed at all.
Trying to stick to no more than 3 colors - some combo of black, teal, gold/sand. If another color needed for detail, I can add. But looking for simple for now.
Lettering would be 10" tall. Entire decal width = 8' max, 5' desirable and height = 3' max
Attached photo of boat transom with old name on it. Blue horizontal stripe at top of transom and existing name decal are already gone. I would take your graphic design and have printed on vinyl and applied to boat.

    If anyone has software that can do this, I am looking to see a design like this: Make a horizontal line of the text (clean font, no script). Perhaps a text style similar to Submission #37 . Make a mirror water image of the text right below that text. Make water ripples in the mirror text. Fade out mirror text to just clear vinyl as it goes further away, so it looks like a water reflection. Not sure what this would look like but would like to see for sure. You pick colors, but try to keep to teal, gold or orange, and black or navy family. Thanks! PS., if this is impossible task to do, please let me know.

    On advice of a Designer, I provided star rating for each submitted design. Entries with low stars or rejected were not necessarily bad. They just either contain a boat; are incorrect orientation; or look more like a logo than a boat name. Thank you for your submittals. There are some very talented Designers out there. I am new to this site. Once I figure out how to contact individual Designers to discuss their entry, I will.

      Hi, welcome! There is 2 way to contact the freelancer. First one is throughout personal feedback, which you could provide in the form of comment to every submission. The other one is a direct contact via freelancer messenger (chat). That option is very useful for small and fast iteration of design. Kind Regards!

    NO boats in the graphic!!! This decal goes on the back of my boat. Everyone knows it is a boat. So do NOT include a boat in the decal design. Please.

    Sorry I did not supply this info earlier... the boat is a twin engine 40' boat so no sails, canoe, etc. The transom is white so vinyl decal would have to show up against white background. The available space is landscape aspect so a graphic that is 2 times wider than it is tall is better for proportion.
