Wrapping a boat

Recommended Posts

Hi Tintdude,

              I'm not a professional in this area, but I found your website and wanted to know your thoughts.  Thanks for putting up with me.

              I have a boat that looks just like this:


              I want to wrap the upper part of the side in a solid-color vinyl, leaving the bottom part it's natural color.  The width (top -> bottom) of that area is about 9 inches all around, and the boat is 26 foot long on both sides, so I am thinking about 54-58 feet of a vinyl roll will do it.  
              My concern is: how wide should my vinyl roll be?  I was thinking that if I go 10-inch wide roll, I would be able to make it all around the boat.  But then I saw people wrapping boats on youtube, and I was thinking that I might need something a bit wider (14 inches? 24 inches?) to accommodate the upward curve from the back to the front of the boat.  What are your thoughts?

Mostly getting pounded by the trailer rollers at each loading and unloading thats all

:yeah   Other than that it usually does pretty good.  We've got a few customers with fully wrapped boats and it seems to survive just fine.
