Boat Lettering

Hey has anyone ever used Cap'n John's Boat Lettering for boat name and registration numbers? If so, how was the quality and service?

Thanks.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Which one you are talking about? There are a few of them on this little planet

I used the one in Tibet, he sucks. I also used the one in Death Vally, CA, you may as well do it yourself.

Not to be a smart a$$ like some others (hehehehe) but I would ask around the marina or a marina nearby, something like that is best asked locally I think.

I agree. Buy local.

I have always done this myself after having a local shop cut the lettering. Our most recent renaming involved multiple colors that have to be applied separately. I paid a pro to do it right. He actually messed up part of it, went back to his shop to cut more and got it perfect.

I guess I should clarify..This is the website: Capn Johns Boat Lettering Specializes In Vinyl Boat Lettering Boat Names and Graphics. They make the apply yourself vinyl lettering that comes as one piece. They also do the registration numbers in one piece as well. They are out of Orlando.

I have never put lettering on a boat but though it would not be too hard if it came in one piece already spaced out.

I have used these guys Custom Vinyl Lettering - DoItYourselfLettering.com for a couple of boats. Price was excellent and service was super.

No, I am not related at all.

Sorry Chief. .... It is Monday at five.

However, I did check out his profile and see where he is from so I answer it accordingly. I even did search on Captain John. What do the members have to do to help the other follow sailors.

1. Hire a private detective,
2. Learn to read mind

OK, I chose to post a smart ass comment instead. It helps to lighten up the day.

Can't comment on Cap'n John's lettering, but BOAT US did a good job for me too.
