We have a very common looking grey hypalon inflatable
with a very common 5hp outboard
I worry that if I leave it for some time (more than an hour or so) I'll look up and see it zooming off into the distance. It's not that hard to cut through a chain or cable.
I can then imagine the look on my friendly constables face as I tell him my inflatable
with no identifying marks has been "borrowed".
So I would like to apply some sort of distinctive name to the side of the inflatable and possibly to the outboard as well. If done neatly and in the right scale it shouldn't look too bad.
I'll probably give the Admiral free reign to come up with the name, but I wonder :-
1) Should I use some sort of "inflatable paint" or would those stick on vinyl letters work. Is there a generic paint
(e.g. polyurethane) that can be sprayed onto hypalon, is there a primer, should the hypalon be cleaned or roughed up first?
2) Does anyone have any ideas about painting an ID on the outboard?
The idea is to make it so distinctive that anyone thinking of borrowing it would have serious second thoughts. The Police might look for an inflatable with dayglow letting but would not worry about a grey one with a black outboard.
