    I've been asked to do a 9.5" wrap around the side of a master craft boat. This will be a very difficult job because of the contoured railings and arched sides. does anyone have any advice.

    I know convex makes an edge ready air-release vinyl - might work, haven't tried it

    This reply is only slightly related, but might be helpful...

    one of the magazines recently had something about graphics on boats. they cautioned that graphics at the waterline take a lot of abuse (from the constant "abrasion" of the water). I would definately want to use a laminate, or at least the Frogskin or Abrasion Protection foils to protect the graphics.

    Beyond that, yeah, I'd use the Controltac. Its worth the extra $ to save on the time spent installing.

    paging fred.. fred. paging fred. btw, 3m gives a performace guarantee of 2 years for marine use on the 180c product with some qualifications. whether it includes thermal transfer, i will have to see when i get back to the office.

    Not sure why me but yes absolutely ControlTac Comply and a film laminate to extend the life due to the magnified sun exposure and abrasion.
