Hull wrapping?

Has anyone had this done?

I was going to get the hull on mine painted, however I'm aware of a number of yachts that have had the hulls wrapped rather than painted. Just thinking it would potentially work well on the console as well.

Oops


Allways willing to help fellow ribbers, but I nor my lads have time for messing with art work, send me a working file ai , eps dxf etc will help where ever possible.
As Per always,


It kills me to get my own stuff done at times, but err my engines always look new when done, never thought of wrapping a console though,,,mmmmmm

I have how ever done a jet ski, to be honest it never looked great for to long rubbing legs, water passing over it at stupid speeds as well as debri in the water,
Never mind trailer movement and strapping down, but very easily removed if need be,

I've got a bit of the vinyl wrap on my console, used as a scratchplate round the plotter.

It's not lasting very well and may be removed.

Mmmm, did wonder how it would stand up to trailer wear etc.

Maybe not then, was just a thought.

I'm very tempted to return the hull to its original black.

Mate of mine who wraps truck cabs reckons its best to do it in whats called Cast vinyl with a good quality one it should last at least 5 years if its just on the console .

Hi GordyP
I got a console wrap done to cover up some ugly gell repairs last season. Just saying car park low barrier and and off day :-/ The cost was less than half of a respray cost...

The vinyl wrap was brilliant, loads of different colours and effects. Went with matt gun metal in the end. He used a thick high quality cast vinyl, not like the thin easily damaged stuff. Not even a knick and used it all the time this year. The guy said he does a lot of race team support ribs as its a quick and easy over haul to look really good.

Look up Velociwrap based down in the Solent but does travel. Very helpful even if you dont go with it!

That's really useful thanks.

Thinking I'm going to re flow coat the deck myself, thanks to Nugent for his advice, get the console and on deck tank/bench seat wrapped, get the hull re sprayed by a professional. Think I'll get the hull returned to its original black. Already have a new plotter waiting to be fitted once I sort the rewire of the console and a frame, will also fit a screen which Mr Nugent has kindly offered to help with!
