Banners on tubes

Has anyone tried or been successful at attaching a banner to the side of the tubes?

In my minds eye I have this vision of a printed banner fitting snuggly to the tube, so that info can be displayed boldly, but not permanently attached. I am guessing this would involve glueing some sort of fixing points to the tubes.

What I dont want though, is them flapping at speed and creating a lot of noise.

Worth pursuing or shall I clear the mind (again).

Steve

Don't bother - it's hard enough keeping stuck on numbers on a tube!

The local lifeboat had a banner attached to it earlier this week to promote a new lottery to raise money for a new boat house closer to the shore. I'll find some of the press photos' and see if I can work out how it was attached. It was zipping about at a fair all whack too.

Only option worth using is getting it sign written with vinyl lettering but make sure it is the type of vinyl lettering they use for banners as the standard stuff will not last on the tubes of a RIB.

Besides permanent photoshop, you can make the banner out of the same boat fabric, pvc, akron, hypalon, cut letters and form a patch and glue to side tubes. Like gluing a sib/rib logo. The complexity of the banner is another issue.

Hi Steve I tried it , but they last no time at any speed. Is it worth sticking with large flags? I am sure I recall the parker having some substantial flag poles off the frame ?

Possibly even charge for them being made up for charters etc as something to remember the 'event' by.....: if you can get the price right.........I'm assuming it would be possible to get 'cheap' ( ie thinner fabric that wont last more than a days worth of whipping around etc ) ones made up & then add a % on to sell on to the your client...... ( if a worthwhile charter / ful boat / one off event etc ) .

Or if you are looking at Marketing ignore me !

My god I'm loosing it - have just read this whole thread with the assumption that Tube meant London Underground - was just about to post that the cost is high (did it at CR-UK) when the penny dropped - doh

It's OK, your only women (that's my death wish realized)

Found the picture in the local press. The top of the banner is tied off to somewhere on the inside of the tubes from each top corner and middle of the banner(can't see on photo but could be grab handles?).
The bottom left corner is tied off to the Bow (guessing to the U bolt?) and the rope from the bottom right hand corner of the banner seems to go along and under the tubes towards the stern (could be tied off onto the transom?)

I have seen banners done to fit the consul front cover that can be removed for other corportate events,Fixed with strong elasticated rope to eyes on banner and hooks on consul also I have seen banners done with hook and eye tape on tube/banners so they can be removed and will hold at speed but the tape gets tatty when banner removed.

What about flags on A fRAME? which is what we do so we can put other company names on if required. If you use flags always have the extra saver placed on flag

How about a large curved (to match the tubes) sheet of plastic, say 1/8" or 3/16" thick, with the lettering stuck to that? Could bungie the plasic to any handy attachment point, and it shouldn't flap around much.
