Windermere registration lettering

Hi all I have just received my lettering after registering my sib for Windermere but don't really want to stick them to my tubes, has anybody found another way to attach them?

How about sticking them onto a sheet of lightweight plastic board something like they use on House for sale signs or conti board from a diy shop then cable tie it or lash it on with some straps.
I don't know if they are the same as they used to be but from what I remember they were always a bit on the large size could you mount them on the sides of the outboard or do they have to go on the hull .

Mc the numbers are large and 5 of them won't fit on any outboard.

Correx board is what you need. That's the what the for sale boards are made of. Don't get the foam board from hobbycraft as the letters come off when wet...

Thanks for the tips,I will pop in to a local printers and try to scrounge some correx board it should be ideal. Also does anybody know of anywhere to launch for free on Windermere? I will just be unpacking the sib from the back of a van and I have launching wheels. So all I really need is to be able to park near the lake and a reasonably flat access to the water.

The wardens hut at Ferry Nab sell black boards that are just big enough to take reg no + your yearly 'tax disc'. Make a couple of small holes and tie on with a bit of paracord.

we used to launch the dive club inflatables free on the west side of the lake behind Belle Island but its been a long long while since we have been there and done that and its likely to have changed but may be worth a look- to the north of and not far from the chain ferry . Most other places we used have been blocked or whatever. The N.T. site at the extreme SE of the lake was not too dear last time family used it apparently and the staff were very helpful even though it was a ski boat loaded up with wakeboards etc.

I wouldn't let that near a boat on salt water. Your hair will be sticking up pretty quick.

It's only an outdoor junction box with holes in it and it's only splashproof.
