Tempest is on a distinguished road
I had a tape cove stripe on my vessel that was worn and peeling in places but stuck fast in others. Putting another taped cove stripe over it would have shown all the flaws through the new tape. It took me two seasons with a heat gun to remove all the old tape and it's adhesive. I then painted a new cove stripe.

The boot stripe was always painted on. Good surface prep is key in getting good adhesion.
