RIB Lettering

What is the favorite way of attaching registration numbers, state decals etc to Hypalon RIBís? Something that might be removed at some point?

I figured that there was something better than the stencils and jumbo Sharpie technique.

Any vinyl lettering, just use the thinnest font you can find...mine sticks fine even with deflating.

I used hypalon paint to create a base for the numbers and then applied vinyl numbers and letters. Into the second season and still looking good - even though i must have had a glass or two before I put them on!!

Don't have a motor to power the RIB: use oars. Probably no registration necessary, dependent on the locality..

Problem is you just left Staniel, just put the anchor down six miles away off Pipe Cay and the wife sees the supply boat going past towards Staniel and wants fresh milk. Twenty minute wet dinghy ride both ways!

Been a funny few days! | AtAnchor.com

I have a motor and will use it for exploring, fishing etc, so has to be licensed.
My neighbor has what feels like rubber letters on his RIB. I will ask him when I see him. I can’t believe. Have to display a carbon monoxide sticker as well. Seems ridiculous.

Think of the exercise you are avoiding.

I'm good for a half hour paddle board and that's it!

We have adhesive decals on ours. Purchased from Prisim Graphics in Seattle. They have good customer service. Make sure dog is not in the water.

We used the boat number plate company. Looks good. No affiliation.

Another firm vote for boatnumberplate.com. This outstanding product is NOT, however, removable. You specified "something that might be removed at some point."

Why? Law enforcement and underwriters will tell you that dinghies with tough to remove registration numbers aren't stolen nearly as often as those whose numbers are easily peeled off or painted over.

Numbers and underlying area were getting pretty dried out and sun worn on our Navigo 10VS.


Scrapped off the old, masked off the surrounding area and painted with white flex seal spray paint.


After a day drying, applied standard vinyl lettering from a local sign shop I use all the time.

Interesting website, lots of pics and talk of putting on inflatables . . . , but if you follow the links, buried in the fine print is the statement "Not recommended for inflatable boats."

Hmmmm, seems like there's a disconnect there . . .

Please send a link to that location. I've looked over the site fairly carefully and I don't find that statement. But I DO find hundreds of statements saying how you can and should use it on inflatable boats.
