That sounds good dim

Just wondering when I went and got ownership changed they asked me if I wanted to keep the same numbers. I guess you can change numbers if you feel like it but having something that you can remove might be a plus for the next boat.

Most sign places will make you vinyl letters and numbers for next to nothing. They are cut out, not square blocks like you get at most hardware stores. Had mine on my polaris for 10 years and 3 years on my hurricane. I think it cost me about $10. They come on a peel and apply sheet so they go on straight and even.

How do they survive inflating and deflating almost every week through summer?

PS Found photo with my numbers I am happy with them so far. Cost is 2$ and 30 mins of my time.

Those would not be legal in the States. Numbers are required to be permanently attached to the boat here and on the forward part of the hull. They go with the hull/registration, not the owner upon sale.

My current hypalon RIB has painted numbers, they seem to be fine - it stays inflated 99% of the time. My previous Bombard SIB got deflated periodically. It had a huge embossed "C3" near the bow so paint didn't work. It had 2 rigid placards bolted onto the liferope.

cleaning

Facedown, asked my cousin about your sib. He says for numbers to come off that easy there had to be a contaminant “silicone” or something on your boat. When he repairs cars, boat, furniture 80% of the work is cleaning the area that needs repair. I asked hem a cheap way to clean my boat for numbers and he said scrub with soap and water rinse clean, clean with citric cleaner rinse very will with hot water, clean with alcohol 99% pure “get it at electronic stores”. Then he would apply the numbers with a good paint made for pvc or hypalon then go over the area with 303 or a product that has no silicone in it. He uses a latex paint that stretches. Hope this helps. Still like the removable numbers dim uses.
Dim you got me convinced I’m going to try lake Ontario next year, what’s your set up for fishing didn’t see any canon balls hanging over you sib.

Well it would be a next step. I already have Scotty 1099 in my wish list Now I am using divers and/or leadcore.

I still think it is better than nothing.

Don't forget the 303

Don't forget using 303 or something like it, all that cleaning leaves that tube area unprotected. He mentioned it twice so I thought I would to.
I'll be taking my boat there in 5-6 weeks. Do you know if the color has to be back?

USCG seems to be pretty lenient when it comes to SIB's and numbers (at least down here in District 11.) I've seen boats with numbers so worn you couldn't trace them and read them, placards that were clipped on with carabiners or bolt clips, you name it.
