Transom name sticker

Not sure what others do but I always like my SIBs to have their name on the transom. Might help ID it if washed up somewhere (!!) and is a name to put against payment of pontoon/slip fees etc.

I put the name on the inside of the transom as it's usually easier to see.

Just had brilliant service from these guys...

... where you design the sticker online and it calculates the price etc. I ordered one day and received the next. The letters have strong adhesive and are on "front backing sheet" that keeps them aligned for a perfect result.

No sniggering about the name again Willk... we've been round that loop!

Yes you are right he is a bit fierce!! I'm up next Friday for two and half weeks so hopefully bump into you. Remember if you see a yellow hulled RC with black tubes give me a shout. B

Neat result Adam... GoPro and nice quality ropes too eh!

I remember from my Honwave their transoms are ideal for the adhesive with that GRP type smooth finish. The Aerotec black transom is a little textured so I sanded the sticker area with 2000 grade first to make it really smooth.

We haven't got round to finalising a name for ours and hadn't thought of putting a name on for some reason. Though I like Sybil, it's not been settled yet as I'm sure it's been done before.
