How do you put a 'name' on your RIB?

Is there a company making Decals? Or can you get the name you have decided for your RIB on you tubes?

How's your boat named?

yup, you got to wash it off with asatone,or mek,a$$Holeatone as we call it, is best, mek got a lot of bite.

best to have a template made, stick that on the tube, spray it them peel the template off ,After it drys. mite have a shot of one , I'll see.
it'll stay forever or until you take it off.

I have not actually used them but when I asked for help they were very quick with a positive response (and said their sticker would stay on a RIB!!)

Not if they're made from the proper flexible vinyl. I've used them in the past and had them on for a few years with no problems.

Don't have the supplier's details to hand, but a search here would probably turn some up.

On our boats we use contrasting colour hypalon (e.g.black on orange tubes) cut by our local signwriter, then attached with normal hypalon adhesive. Works like a dream on both the (relatively) non flexing parts, like the tubes, and also the flexing areas such as sprayhood on the D class. Alternatively, have the letters stiched onto parts that don't need to be airtight, or stitched onto panels which can then be glued on.

Additionally, the boats carry their name on an engraved wooden plaque on the A frame.

Hope this helps.

Simon

Thanks gang, still unsure about which route to take....

Stencel (with some waterproof paint) seems to be the better option....

Where do I get the stencil made? Where do I get the paint?

Thanks!
