Sib naming

Hi all, long time since last post as in truth I don't know enough to give advice, but I do read most of the topics.
Anyway I have decided to name my 310 sti and was going to order a stick on name label but wow I was quoted 35 per label, so I was wondering can I just paint the tubes?

You could but it would probably look ****!

Maybe get a cheaper weather resistant vinyl die cut for the transom?

What is the name?

Yep that's what I do. You can get these from Ebay with lettering height to suit space available.

Of course it does depend on why you want the name displayed. For me it's just so I can ID it to someone... for example better than telling a harbour master I was paying for "the grey inflatable with black Suzuki" which could be one of many similar craft.

Wonder what you actually get for 35, as others have said standard vinyl letters should stick to the transom and should be cheaper.

I have painted it on my Sib buy making up a template and it has worked well for me, I don't think it looks bad!

Hi thanks for the replies, and yes im only really naming it so the harbour master can identify it, not got a name yet perhaps I should call boaty Mac boat face or what ever they called it, or tulip as it comes out at the same time

The letters I've used have been self-adhesive and are on a backing so the name is pre-spaced.
