I dont think tape is a way to go. In addition to the risk of not staying on, most boat stripes are not a fixed width, they get wider as the hull turns in, so they look the same width from the side. Put on straight tape and it ends up looking like it shrinks fore and aft...

Use a paint like Interlux Brightsides yachtpaint.com - the website of International and Interlux paints
