Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] BOAT GRAPHICS - FLOTATION LINE COLOR

I think the line on the SM is a color that straddles the line between red and orange, so it's a bit of a matter of opinion. Though maybe mine has faded.
If you go with a vinyl boat name (I would), be sure you get "high performance" vinyl. I used a local sign shop for the name on my previous boat, and it lasted about 4 years with regular, outdoor-rated vinyl. I had the same shop make lettering for my dinghy, and they used high performance vinyl because it would be subject to inflating/deflating. It's still going strong after 7 years, most of that spent in the weather on davits. I've since received the same advice from a family friend who runs a (different) sign shop -- the high performance stuff should last about 10 years, and isn't much more expensive.
