I'm new to the forum and to salt water boating
in general and I was hoping to get some good advice
on changing the accent colors of my 25ft WellCraft Cabin
Cruiser. I would absolutely love to completely change the exterior trim colors to something more my personal taste.
My first question is can I change the color of the canvass top by either dying or painting it somehow? The top is only four years old and in almost perfect shape, I just don't like the greenish color it is. I can best describe it as almost an emerald green on sunny days, and more of a teal or aqua hue on cloudy days. Also, I'm not sure how to identify the exact material it is, any help with this would be great.
My second question is regarding the exterior vinyl type stick on trim that wraps the complete boat
. Can this be painted and sealed somehow so that the salt water
won't tear it up? Or do I have to take the current
stuff off and totally apply new stuff?
Although I have other questions, I'll limit this to this last question. I also want to rename the boat
and it appears that the current
lettering on the back is almost like a vinyl stick on type similar to the vinyl wrap on the sides. Can anyone tell me what that material is and where to get a piece to make my own custom lettering with? Also, I have no idea what really keeps it on, especially in the back of the boat where it takes a beating. Does this vinyl just have an extremely sticky back to it?
Thank you in advance of any first hand advice
you may have to help me with my boat.
