Gluing Numbers Onto Hypalon Dinghy

What product should I use to glue my registration numbers onto my dinghy. I need a good glue for Hypalon. 2-part is OK, since I'm used to dealing with west systems epoxy.

Regards

What is the material of the numbers?

The 3" ones (west marine) have sticky backs which work with hypalon, but they won't last very long. But replacing is no biggie.

after you glue them on take a minute to outline them with a permanent marker so you can paint them on after they come unglued. I have used black Awlgrip.

inflatable numbers

I just had my vinyl sign guy make a quick stencil using the same font as the big boat name, taped them on the inflatable, and filled in the stencil with dark blue permanent marker. Cost $20, and after 4 years just went over them this year with the same marker... they'd faded some. Works fine.

I did the same thing with a magic marker in the early '90's. The boat we cruised has been sold and replaced with our Dragonfly, but the Avon is still out on my dock. I can still read the boat name.
