Raised Chrome Lettering

Post by John D » Sun Apr 26, 2015 9:19 am

I have not been able to find a good source for new or used chrome lettering. I'm interested in using it on the transom for my boat name. Not sure why but it seems to be more common on Canadian boats vs US -- and I have a Canadian boat. Example picture from recent Woodyboater article.

We use chrome metal lettering on most of the Riva boats - contact Alan Weinstein through rivaguru.com.

Thanks for the suggestions -- I will try the Riva source. Doup P - yes, lots general chrome letters out there but very few with cut-outs for screws. Obviously a dissapearing detail.

Any ideas for why the Canadian built boats seem to have more of this type of lettering than the US painted names?

No Idea!

Yorktown has painted plastic letters. They have been on the boat as long as I can remember. I suspect that they were with her when my parents bought her in 1969.
