Rockport's New Waterfront Signature Sign

Ed Huck Marine was looking to help put Rockport on the map in a very meaningful way to mariners. A large sign spelling out the villages’ name that could be seen from near and far seemed a great way to let boaters know they were welcome in Rockport. Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, the new sign sits atop the main repair shop and spans a distance of 29 feet. Each letter is 3 ½ ft. high by 8 inches deep and is internally illuminated with state-of-the art submersible LED lighting. The lighting was specially designed to provide a warm, welcoming red glow at night without creating a harsh glare or interfering with mariners’ night vision. The entire sign requires only a little more power than a single 100 watt bulb!
Using photo-realistic mock-ups, the sign was conceptualized, designed, and supplied by Outcraft Services of Rockport with The Welding Company of Lansdowne providing custom metal fabrication services.
