I had good luck with "Sharpie"-brand Oil-Based Paint Markers on my PVC boat. Perhaps they have these or something similar available in the UK. They need to dry for a bit, but don't eat the PVC, and don't rub off too easily. They can be removed with acetone or MEK. The best part is that they are easy to use and then re-cap, and also only cost a few bucks each. I should do a little write-up.

How often do you need to recoat the sign using the oil based markers?

I've only had the boat for several months now, but it seems to be holding up just fine. I haven't had to recoat it yet, but time will tell.

Interesting. My girlfriend (soon to be wife) is a UK citizen, and has relatives in Wales.
