Hull Numbers

This new rule appears in the Fall 2008 "Runner Tracks" , I don't think it's on line. Basically it says the numbers must be on the hull on both sides under the mast step. They must be at least 5.5 inches high and .7874 inches wide.

Runner Tracks

Thanks Bob. I can't find that issue of runner tracks... and yes, I have found every single other one I have!

vinyl lettering....

I went to a office supply/stationery store and
bought a 3-inch vinyl lettering kit (made by "Duro Decal"
out of Chicago). Cut out the desired letters
from the sheets, then paint them with DuPont Fusion
paint (bonds to plastic) in the color of your choice.
Have done this for boats, snowmobiles, fish houses, etc.
Lots of letters for the buck. To change colors just buy
another can of paint.

So..... What happens if I don't want to put those ugly numbers on my hull? and choose not to. Personally I'm not fond of them, obviously.

For those of you who do want to put numbers on your hull.
ONe of my summer crew has a vinyl cutter, and will do a great job of printing them for you at a fair price.

good things i've heard

Don't know the guys a Lettertech & never used them but I keep hearing good things about them... doubt there's a coincidence.

There must be a reason.


FastSigns may be a good start. They have franchises all over the country, and they make press-and-peel vinyl lettering for everything from boats to office doors. You just line it up, press it on, and pull off the backer. The cost is based on square inches. You drive by one at the intersection of 394 and 494 (north side next to the Schmitt Music).
