I just looked at the 2011 West Marine catelog and they have a product that will work. It is Boatnumbersplate.com which custom creates the entire series of numbers on a glue on product. $40 and you provide your own hypalon glue.

hypalon lettering issue
There are hypalon letter kits that are made for that purpose. They come with glue and instructions and are available in different colors. I have used them and they held up.

I do not have to have registration letters on the dink but just TT Elephants Child.
So I want to put that on the black panel I will create with the balck hypalon paint but want to use a yellow or white paint. Guess I will just try something waterbased and external. The dink is permantly inflated so flex should not be a big issue.
Thanks for merging my unintentional double post. I have wifi problems at times.

|lancelot9898||I've had good luck using stencils with a permanent black magic marker for the number on my Archilles. If I had old numbers to remove, I'ld try using an inflatable boat cleaner and lots of rubbing and rags.|

|Cruisingdad||We had two threads and I merged them. I also replied to the other thread and had not seen the responses. I guess my only response that is valid is the piece of lexan.|

You can buy vinyl letters pretty cheap, or do what we did on one of ours, and just buy a piece of lexan and put some letters on that and hang from port/stbd via lines.
Just some thoughs. Not sure what paint would stick to that stuff. Others may know better.

|TQA||My problem is the only hypalon paint colour I can get down here in the BVI is black and getting paint shipped down is problamatical at best.|
