The name you(r) boat has means more than how it's lettered.
You won't own the boat forever. Think of the next owner. It's a lot easier to remove viynl
I agree with Walt. My folks Cal-29 had been named "Apogee II". I'm sure it meant something to the person that named Apogee and Apogee II, but it didn't do anything for my folks. It was tough removing the painted on name and they ended up repainting the entire topsides of the boat.
Unless your boat really needs a painted, engraved signboard to look good, go with vinyl lettering. Simple, easy, inexpensive, and easy to replace or change.
