LETTERING OTHER THAN NAMEBOARDS
There are many areas where lettering needs to be carved directly into the structure of the boat. such as registry identification, which is required to be carved into deck beams. I have in the past carried out such work when the vessel is in a boatyard, or at her mooring. (working off floating pontoons along side is interesting, but not impossible).
Here are a few examples of past commissions:
Small ship registry numbers,
IMO identification numbers
The vessels name carved into her wheel, or her name carved directly into the hull.
Decorative carving reflecting the vessels name
