Question Transom letters: paint vs vinyl

The owner of the boat I'm buying wants to remove the name-signboard currently affixed to its transom, which I agreed to. I'm trying to decide whether to spell the name with pre-cut vinyl letters or pay someone to paint it on instead. Is vinyl deemed inexcusably cheesy by any substantial faction of intelligent mariners? Does a painted-on name have any theft-deterrant effect? What other pros and cons are relevant?
