Attaching dinghy registration decals
How does one go about getting the vinyl letters to stick to the PVC fabric of a dinghy?
I finally get the dinghy registered. Got USCG approved decals, applied them, and 4 hrs later the letters started to peel off the PVC. Yes I did use a vinyl cleaner first and ensure that the surface was absolutely dry and clean.
West Marine does not sell the dinghy registration boards to apply the letters to as they told me that it is not USCG approved so they pulled them from the catalog. Maryland DNR says it is ok to use a board to attach letters to. A quick survey around the marina shows boards, decals, nothing, and one where the letters where hand painted on
What glues are safe to use on PVC? I'll continue googling to find a solution.
