Boat name--painted vs vinyl

Ahoy , all sound like good advise but you might try my method. Using an 8" grinder thoroughly remose all old lettering and surrounding gelcoat. 36 grit usally works well for this purpose. Then reapply a good thick coat of gelcoat covering the wet patch with wax paper and a plywood (marine grade only) block and some sort of clamps and tape to keep the gelcoat where you want it. After it dries sand to perfection and using the suitable color latex paint (You probably have gallons in your garage) and repaint the new name. This way you can get the name off next time you change your mind or wife either way. Merry Christmas Big Bed 56 Ho Ho Ho

i have sucessfully used easy off oven cleaner on two boats. it leaves a shadow from the old lettering. i just compound the gelcoat and it''s like it was never there.
