Replacing Hull Letters

Recommended Posts

What’s the best adhesive to use for the Chap lettering and logo?  Had a bunch fall off this season so have some to replace. 

Thanks

Yes, 3M makes a marine double stick urethane foam tape. You peel off the backing and attach it to the letters by pressing hard as it is a pressure sensitive adhesive. With a razor blade, you trim it off exactly to the letter outline, and cut out the captured holes. Next, put sections of masking tape to outline the exact foot print for the letter or letters as you only get one shot at this. Also, use lacquer thinner to prep both surfaces. What's nice about the mounting tape is it allows you to mount several letters all at the same time if you lock them together with masking tape on the front side, and it will not extrude outside of the base foot print when applied. No excess to clean up, just be sure to push HARD on each letter after installation to activate the adhesive.  W
