naming the dinghy

The admiral didn't like the old hard dinghy (instability getting on & off) and decided to buy a new, inflatable with aluminum bottom; very nice and light, and can be stored ahead of the mast, while on dock.

I want identify the dinghy, but wonder what is the best method of doing so.
I'm thinking of placing the id on the inflatable area, pt & sb, as it's the most visible place. The transon is too small and with the kiker on, it's almost invisible.

Has anyone "painted" their dinghies name? what did you use? Do you have any suggestions?

Is it because sometimes you're dink " has left the building " so to speak ??? My dink has tried to run home to momma a couple of times . I have a very willful & ill behaved dink . Seems like every time I climb in it's an adventure . Does anyone else have any experience with a possessed dinghy ????

Elvis was the mascot of the FSU gators before he got into law enforcement, and became the watchdog on Sonny Crockett's boat, "St. Vitus Dance."

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
