Will vinyl lettering/decals stay stuck on the plastic hull? Before spending money, I want to make sure the boat name will remain secure.

I used a company called sailing graphics. They made both the boat registration numbers and a boat logo (image) about 2 years ago. They have stayed in place on both salt and fresh water without any problems, peeling, etc.

Reasonably priced too.

I have used a local print shop to make registration numbers. I cleaned area before applying them, and they have stood up through three years of wear. No problems!

I purchased lettering at the local boat store and I had no problems with it staying on the boat in the 3 years I owned it.

OK...thanks for the info. Good to know that decals will remain secure on polyethylene hulls.
