Paint numbers on PVC

Good day. I'd like to paint ID numbers on a PVC inflatable, and am having trouble deciding on the paint. MDR seems to rate pretty well in a few reviews I've found. The boat will be deflated and rolled up in the winter, and I suspect my vinyl letters will pop and peel somewhat. Any suggestions on paint? Thanks for the info. BTW. It is a MAGA boat; Russian inflatable with a Japanese motor.

MDR, Tuffcoat, or Westmarine?

Anyone have any experience with MDR, Tuffcoat, or Westmarine's tube paint? Reviews I can find are limited; can't yet find the paints that nugent suggested. Will keep looking. Thanks. j

thanks

king: many thanks. that ranked pretty well on https://www.practical-sailor.com/iss...t_10546-1.html.
i will add it to the list. mdr ranked a tad better, is cheaper than superflex, and is apparently available in the US. i think either one will do and i will get whichever can be shipped here.

System 6 from Man of Rubber! Expensive, but is incredibly flexible, durable, and long lasting.
