  Heat and patience
  Posted by: Marshall on Aug-31-13 4:31 PM (EST)
 

Using a heat gun on 500w setting I just applied it to the bow of an Epic 18 which has quite the plumb bow and with heat, roller and patience you can manually thermoform it to the shape. The real trick was the stern that has the part-o-the-hull rudder with flip down skeg. Same process but then cut the tape occluding the skeg, away and carefully made even rounding to the slot with the tip of the razor knife.

Fun with melted vinyl.

See you on the water,
