Vynal lettering from a sign shop is quick, while you wait, probably cheaper than the paint and brush, and you can select from a zillion fonts, add graphics, select colour, even metallic etc.

Best of all you dont need a marine business so its cheap, low cost, affordable etc etc

Oh, and you whack 'em on yourself.

OK - so we're all agreed vinyl lettering is the way to go - but back to Dave E's original questions, does anyone have any other suggestions for how to preview the look of the new name ion the transom? Photoshop works for me for this kind of thing, although it's a bit limited in the range of graphic fonts.
On L'il Dink I found the font on MS Word and then used Irfanview. Its free and easier to use than photoshop, which I have too.

But then I went to the sign shop and asked them what font would be best to show "speed". That sort of creative thing can be good to ask a graphics person, its their expertise.

Same for a boat name, work out what it is about your boat and name that you want as its theme and ask the sign shop.

Currently mine is just boring font, but my boat name Sea Life theres a cool font that looks like rolling waves but its not in the forum fonts.
