A final touch for the project was to put a name on the boat. The owner chose an old family boat name, and after various iterations with font and style choices, selected the final version for the transom, which I ordered from a local graphics shop and installed. The vinyl is gold leaf with green outline. The little holes in the transom are screw inserts designed for the traditional wooden nameboards often seen on these boats.
Later, with some “custom-painted” white screws, I finished up by inserting the screws in the threaded holes to help hide them. From a modest distance, this made a significant difference.
