My new (old) boat has (had) an eagle on the transom. It is (was) a very sharp and salty-looking accent. I decided that I wish to have my boat name and home port decals displayed prominently on the transom, so I (reluctantly) removed the eagle from the transom. I will find a special place for it either on or inside the boat, or at home. It's a lovely piece. I love it!... just not on my transom, I guess.
