Naming your Raft

Does anyone else name their rafts?
Mine are Green Machine and Dandelion Wine.

I was thinking about painting their names on but didn't want to screw it up. I would get it stenciled, or even pay to have it done.

They are Urethane coated Maravias. Has anyone had any success with painting them?

You are not alone. Mine are SLEIGH RIDE (it is red and I got it in Dec.), GOAT BOAT, and GUMBY.

I too need to paint the names on.

I named mine. Called it the Weisswurst. It's a light gray RMR, so looks like weisswurst. I created a stencil in an old German font and used a vinyl spray paint.

My boat is the "Blue Heron". The fist was the "Kayenta Queen" and the person I sold it called it the KQ II. I haven't painter them either but remember hearing about a guy using latex caulk. Not sure what he used for coloring.

If you're in the Denver area, check out whitewater inflatable technologies! Zach and his shop do lots of logos for big companies and he couldn't be a better guy to work with.

Ours was the Red Hot Chile Pepper and we're still working on a name for our new orange boat!

Mine is Red Rover.. I'm going to talk to a local guy that I've seen who has put a lot of art work on his boats to see if he'd give me a hand in applying the name.

I always heard the Park Service does not like names displayed on rafts. Any truth to this? Probably because the subject mater goes south quickly.

Park Service only cares if it is the name of a rafting company. They don't want people advertising in the park.

If it is just the name of your boat the NPS won't hassle you...unless the Ranger feels like being a dick...
