I do not have to have registration letters on the dink but just TT Elephants Child.

So I want to put that on the black panel I will create with the balck hypalon paint but want to use a yellow or white paint. Guess I will just try something waterbased and external. The dink is permantly inflated so flex should not be a big issue.

Thanks for merging my unintentional double post. I have wifi problems at times.

Does anyone know the brand name of this paint? Does WestMarine carry it? I'd like to buy some!

hypalon lettering issue

There are hypalon letter kits that are made for that purpose. They come with glue and instructions and are available in different colors. I have used them and they held up.

I just looked at the 2011 West Marine catelog and they have a product that will work. It is Boatnumbersplate.com which custom creates the entire series of numbers on a glue on product. $40 and you provide your own hypalon glue.
