True.. but while I'm a "youn'un" relatively speaking, when it comes to this kind of thing I'm old-school. I used to be into muscle cars and hot rods, and nothing peeved me more than vinyl over paint instead of a proper paint job. I always thought of it as taking the easy way out, and I *hated* feeling that raised edge. And then there's the risk of catching an edge when cleaning, etc.. AAAaaargh! Some may (and do) disagree, but it's just my opinion on the issue..

So while it's not exactly the same thing, and I don't have a problem with having a vinyl name on a boat (I know most of you do) I'd just be unhappy having it on *my* boat. Plus it's got enough plastic on it already

Yes, I may be unreasonable and stubborn, but at least I know it

And you're absolutely right, especially if I go the ghosting route where the design is extremely simple - I can cut it out myself..

Didn't want to hijack the thread with the merits of vinyl over paint, so you may now resume your regularly scheduled programming of kickass boats with kickass names..

Fair enough!... be sure to post pics of the end result.

And I know what you're saying - I've a brother-in-law who restores cars, one of his projects was a "General Lee" - totally faithful paintjob without a decal anywhere.

Painting season's over here in southern Ontario, but it's all part of spring work.. you can bet I'll be posting a massive refit thread when I do, including the name

And I approve of your brother-in-law.. there's a guy after my heart!

Here is what I have in mind. The illustration is my wife's work and Meltem is her name meaning sea breeze in Turkish. I will have to figure out where to get a decal made of it.

The boat's PO kept her in Milford. Ten years later I still have never got around to changing it to Noank.

I don't think I've posted my boat name yet. Transom and hull.
