There was perminant staining on the stern transom. The heat of the sun had burned in discolouring on the GRP under the vynol lettering.
The second option was to cover the transom in a coloured vynol: white, black, or green, it wouldnt matter, as long as the name was covered. This was attractive at the possibility of including a design of some kind, like a mermaid or red lips, at the placing of it.
The third option is most practical and the one to be used if possible: this is to place a new panel on the transom with the ladder removed to insert a gate door stern entrance.
