Its time to make your boat stand out from the rest.
We print on the best vinyl that fits the needs of your boat for the longest life possible. Our printed vinyl with UV lamination is expected to last 7 years.
We are excited to yelp you get a wrap on your boat and back on the water with a quality vinyl wrap you are sure to enjoy for years to come.
How to PREP FOR INSTALL
Wrap prep is the most important step of instillation. The rule of thumb is "if you can feel it, you'll see it". As you run your hand along the surface prior to wrapping, if you can feel imperfections you will be able to see these under the wrap.
PAINT - ensure you have washed thoroughly and if there is any failing paint areas, cracking, chipping, etc. you will want to spot sand these areas. We recommend finishing with a 220 sand paper.
VINYL - if your boat currently has any vinyl wrap or decals, remove these prior to installing your wrap. Once all vinyl is removed, you will need to also remove any adhesive left behind. Try using heat to warm up the vinyl and do the removal in a well warmed area. If vinyl or adhesive is difficult to remove, you can also use plastic razor blades, rubber erasers, and denatured rubbing alcohol.
BARE ALUMINUM - its common to have small rock chips, dings and scratches in your aluminum. We suggest to use a metal body filler for large issues, and simple sanding away at pitting in the aluminum, and small dings.
PRIOR TO INSTALL - after you have finished necessary prep, we suggest washing with a dish soap or car soap to ensure all grease, oil, and residue from removal solutions is washed away. Just before installing your wrap, use a microfiber towel with denatured alcohol to wipe away any dust and ensure the surface is ready for installation.
INSTALL ENVIRONMENT - we recommend installing your wrap indoors. Vinyl can be brittle and may rip when the temperature is too cold. It can become very soft and may stretch easily if the temperature is too warm. Ideal temperature to install is 70-85 degrees.
How to MEASURE
Wraps are made to fit the side of your boat between the gunnel and the chine. It is important to measure the side of your boat accurately in order to get a wrap that fits your boat properly
To measure the length correctly take a tape measure and, following the curve of the boat, measure the length along the Gunwale and also along the Chine. Depending on the style of boat, either the Gunwale or the Chine will be longer.
The LONGER measurement will determine the length of your wrap:
The curve and angle of the hull can make the actual height deceiving to the eye. The best practice when finding the height is to measure the distance between the gunnel and the chine at both the Bow and Stern, then measure the distance between the gunnel and the chine along the side of the boat roughly every 12inches .
The longest of these measurements will determine the height of your wrap.
