I did this at TechShop Menlo Park's automotive area! http://www.techshop.com
If you get a chance to get your boat out of water, you may as well give it a new look by painting it. I choose the color pink! 

Step 1: Scraping

Using a razor blade, scrape off any unwanted stickers. If you're removing your registration digits, make sure to write them down somewhere so you'll remember when you need to vinyl cut them again. 
As constructive feedback, remove the masking tape BEFORE the paint completely cures (ideally, when it's still tacky). It prevents the paint from lifting when the tape is pulled.
<p>Good point cheddarlump and, even though it's a bit the pain, install new tape for each coat. I pull the tape off as I go -- that way I know it will pull *clean* and not tug at the paint I'm wanting to leave on the surface.</p>
Were you able to paint where the trailer covers the boat?
I am letting you know I used this method to paint my fishing boat. Thanks! <br> cliffyd
