Default Starboard and Lettering

Okay, I have all but given up trying to actually put the name on our boat. Mad Max did an incredible job with vinyl lettering, unfortunately, the transom locker door is made of a material very similar to that of the deflector shield on the Millennium Falcon.

I just got off of the phone with a guy at a local marine graphics joint in Seattle and he literally said "good luck".

I am about ready to rip this darn door off and cut one to fit using marine grade plywood.

Any suggestions? There must be a way to properly name my boat after 2 years of no name.

Just spoke with Maxum and I now understand how a company can fall apart.

Thanks SP. I was thinking about that, but there is hardly any room there. Darn it. So frustrating.

I never tried this with letters, but it works well with other vinyl. I mask off the area that the vinyl is not going to be to be stuck too (easy on straight lines and solid shapes). I then put a light coat of 3M contact cement spray. Remove the masking and stick the vinyl. You can't do the water slide method. I don't know what Starboard is but this method has worked for me on many materials. Now if contact cement won't stick to Starboard nothing will.
