Boat Names – Vinyl Versus Painted

Vinyl is a good bit cheaper to do, if the need to is save my money.
Vinyl Cutout decal outlasts a painted name by quite a lot.
With vinyl you’ll also be able to change the hailing port if you ever relocate permanently but keep the boat.
You have to be careful when cleaning, waxing and compounding both.
Guess it depends if you what it to be more likely that when you sell the boat the new owner keeps the same name.
Paint fades unless you keep it polished often. (Higher maintenance)
Replacing a letter:
It’s easy to replace a letter if it gets scratched with vinyl.
Vinyl is final..once the paint starts to fade it looks awful.
What If you sell you boat but want to keep the name?
Removal its much easier to remove the vinyl.
Vinyl – Better for resale as it comes off for any new owner.
Buying a Boat:
If you didn’t like the name of a boat and it was painted on would you look elsewhere…?
There is always another boat…
My opinion for what it’s worth is the vinyl looks far better than hand painted.
smooth edges no bleed out and it last longer, cheaper and better in the long term.
Most people choice Vinyl…
