West Marine has a 50' roll of 2" tape for about $18. So far that fits my needs the best. The brand is seafit. I havent gotten any feedback yet on what kind of tape to buy yet. Its probably for sale somewhere for $9 if west marine is selling it for $18.

Go to an auto body supply shop, or a sign shop. MUCH cheaper and more variety of colours than West Marine.

I found some at West Marine for $18 for 50' of 2' tape. The brand is seafit. I have no idea of this is decent stuff or not.

I double posted somehow. West Marine was short on color variety. All the major brand auto stores didnt have any in the 2' variety. A specialty shop might though.

I did a web search and found a supplier, it was so long ago I don't remember who it was. Also, just remembered there's an eraser wheel for an electric drill that is supposed to work really well for removal of old tape. It's also available from auto body and paint suppliers.
Thanks Faster, I'm starting to get the knack for it.

there are different types of vinyl, and 2 types of the seafit type. go with the better one, its only a few dollars more and is much better vinyl and will last longer.

the eraser wheel is usually called a pin stripe remover, or vinyl zapper. there are a few brands/models. most offer it with a buffer or as a wheel that can be used on a buffer or electric drill. once off there are adhesive removers available but just remember as with paint prep is everything and you have to have the surface preped correctly for it to last.

side note: the two main types of vinyl are calendared and cast, cast is more expensive and lasts longer. just google it and you will find a wealth of information.

I really havent found a whole lot of 1- 2 in tape out on the net. Most everything is set up for automotive use.

I've ordered myself a 150' roll of 3M scotchcal striping tape from a local automotive detailing shop. According to 3M it's good for boats, anyone here have experience otherwise?

The 3m scotchal is on my short list of what I am going to buy. Can I ask what the auto shop charged for the roll?

What's the trick for geting a a smooth curve? I replaced my 2" stripe a few years ago, and as careful as I tried to be, I still got some slight waves.
