My Donzi had awlgrip below on the white bottom and Imron clearcoat over the graphics and top deck. Held up very well.

My sign shop out here in CT charges $12.50 per square foot installed regardless of color or graphics.

CT: On that Donzi, was that vinyl wrap under the Imron clearcoat?

How long did it hold up well?

Default Using Vinyl For Accents

You can change the total appearance of your boat quickly by just adding accents.

I believe Imron is rated to go below the waterline. That would be my choice for paint as that **** is HARD and SHINEY. Gel would cost you a lot more. A wrap is a good option but I would compare it to the price of paint and make a decision.

Its not designed for below the water line, but it is about as good as you can get.
