Boat Names... sticking it on...
I'm looking at getting my boat name added to my RIB... looking at getting some vinyl letters made up, however the few people in NZ who make them are unsure how they'd last/stick on tubes (PVC) and also how they'd cope with varying inflation of tubes...
yes these will stick to a RIB fine, however I am not sure how they would fair if the RIB was deflated for long peroids of time (due to the folds and creases when deflated).
my vinyl supplier says there is usually a reaction between the adhesive and the PVC causing the decal to lift off fairly quickly.
Yes they will adhere to a smooth surface like that. Being cast vinyl it is one of the most flexible vinyls and so one of the most suitable for the changing inflated surfaces on RIB tubes. In saying that I can't guarantee anything as it is not an ideal surface for vinyl to be applied to.
so each one says something completely different!!
Has anyone any actual experience with vinyl lettering, sticking to tubes?
I don't have enough space on the sides of the console for the name, and local law says I must have it on both sides of the boat, so cannot put it on the front facing part of the console... tubes are the only option...
Thanks in advance...
