Boat name--painted vs vinyl
Vinyl is a great alternative to painted lettering, especially if you want to add a bit of flair. I went to a sign place and via their computer we designed a "wave" that now stretches across my boat''s stern with little "splashes" here and there. We also designed the name to complement the design. The whole thing cost around $100, but it looks awesome, was easy to apply, no mess and fuss. Also, once the design was settled on, it only took 5 minutes to print out. Looks top notch.
