I would go vinyl. I went the paint route on the last one and all I did was worry about it every time I tied up anywhere the cost to repair would have killed me. My next one will be mostly white with evry little or no color at all.

Vinyl is a lot harder to fix. Paint is an easier repair. Paint always looks better.

That may be true if the paint is all just base colors,but when you have all candy & perils it gets tuff and expencive. Like I said next will be mostly white. Its just way more classie and timeless

That is not an issue, Tank runs his boat in some big water and it has not had a problem. Even when he is tied up to a dock and the fenders rub against has not peeled the edges.

What are some of the companies that design and print these decals? I am thinking of updating the look this year. I want to do something on a smaller scale than the "lit cig", which looks GREAT for decals. Really just want to buy the decals and put them on myself, have a few years experience putting decals on Fed ex vans and lots of woodgrain on vehicles,haven't had to put that a car lately.
