Dinghy naming

I have been in the infatable bussiness for more than 10 years. The best way of putting the name in the inflatable tube is to do so with a stencil kit and a permanant marker. The Marker cannot be wiped of without chemical and the glue applied letters always get destroyed as they are elevated from the level of the fabric

hope this helps
Bill

On the Pearson forum there was a fellow whose boat was named "Ping". The dinghy was "Pinghy". We're "Pokey". We've thought the dinghy might be "Pokier".

that boat in 'brothers keeper' is definately not the E-40, and it does look like the CR 38.
I did post both comments from wiki and from imdb. wiki has been known to get it wrong. imdb is usually pretty good.

so I think you are right about the CR 38.

Wonder where the E-40 story came from?

Here is the annotation from the wiki story: ^ a b c d e f g h Davis, Chris (June 1986). "The Boats of Miami Vice". Motor Boating and Sailing 157 (6): 36–40.

So the wiki story seems to be quoting a Motor Boating and Sailing article.

Thanks

What about "Gumby"? That would fit a dinghy really well.

Thank you ReliableOutboard DOC.


This thread hit way off the mark, but it has been interesting nevertheless.

I just found out that there is a product in the US market (not in Canada) called "ChemGlaze" it is a paint that will bond to the tube material. Doesn't require re-touching every year and doesn't peel when you deflate the tube. Using stencil to apply the paint is still the best option, I'm told.

Will have to do some research on the Producer's site.

M/V "Quidam" -- (pronounced "key-DAHM"; ) means "a certain one/thing" or "anonymous passerby" in Classical Latin

Dingy "Nadie" -- spanish for "No-one" or "Nobody"

*********
Sidebar question... Bruce (my significant other) wants to spell our boat's name phonetically. I say NO WAY. I mean, how bad can they mispronounce it for hailing purposes? What say others? I don't want to hijack this thread so PM's would be ok.
