Results of our fall project :)

Hey, all- here's a sneak peek of an article submitted for publication. Hopefully, it'll be in a local rag soon

Take a look- we really like how things turned out!

Wowzers Peter! Looks fantastic! What kind of life expectancy is estimated?

Brad (our installer) said that in the PNW we can expect a 7-10 year life from the vinyl. In areas like SoCal or South Florida, it'd be about half (3-5 years).

When you mention life from the vinyl, what does that mean? Does it fade or start pealing off or decay or something else? Would the life have been extended if you had chosen white vinyl?

It certainly looks beautiful.

A big thumbs up. Giving a boat a vinyl wrap, what a great idea. You'll have to let us know how you like it in down the road. Give us an update along the way.

The wrap is a 2 part laminate (color and clear) and the manufacturer states it it colorfast for the long term. I believe it's the estimated life of the adhesive.

Great to hear Peter, we have a couple buses wrapped in a similar product(could be the same for all I know) that have lasted over 4 years so far.

Looks great. How difficult is the task of removing the wrap and prepping for the rewrap in 4 to 7 years? Sounds like something good for people who like to periodically change things up as well.

Perfect for someone wanting a character paint job that may not go well with other owners upon resale or huge paint stripe areas like on a KK Manatee.

Great job Peter. I've seen lots of Porsches with complete wraps and was wondering if it would work on boats too. Can't wait to see it next time we're in Shilshole.

I've often wondered about wrapping a boat hull and house. Seems like a cost-effective method if the product endures the rigors of the marine environment.

I might have missed it above, but did you share the cost of the project? I saw 1/3 of the cost of paint, but is it fair to estimate it at under $10K for your 52 footer?

I love the new look, Peter. Kudos to you for thinking of and trying this. Please keep us posted on its durability.

For a hull I've gotten quotes to wrap that were not that far off of quotes to paint.

But that's Ft. Lauderdale.

I didn't mention the actual cost in the article, Al, as I worked out a deal with the shop based on being a test platform. Our cost (including haulout) was around $7000- retail cost will be around $8500 for a similar sized vessel.

Then all this brings some additional intrigue to me. What if? What if you wrapped the bottom? Perhaps a different wrap developed with some of the chemical characteristics of bottom paint? Could you develop an anti-fouling wrap? Seems quite possible to me that in conjunction with someone in the anti-fouling business already that could be done.

How about wrapping my KK Manatee with a 3D graphic of a Flemming 55.

A recent article in BoatUS Magazine on Peter's boat wrap.
