Maybe I can see about getting some made if it doesn't work out with the CG. We order stickers for my company equipment frequently and will make an order soon. I'll find out how much it cost.

Interesting in hearing what those of you contacting the CG find out!

... - that's why I like the sharpie idea.  But sharpie ink does wear off...

I use a sharpie to mark some measuring lines on the deck of my kayak. I think sharpie writting inside a hatch it's going to last longer than the kayak.

Yeah, and that Hawg Trough Extender will last forever too.  :smt003

I used to mark fish lengths on the deck of my yak, but those faded away years ago.  The inside of the yak is much different than the outside with so much less exposure, abrasion, direct sunlight...etc., but the inside of MY yak is a pretty rough place in general - I'd give sharpie a few months or MAYBE a year in there.

I like the sound of that 'bomb proof' sticker.

Being an honorable sportsman is way more important than what you catch.

I scratched my drivers license inside the hull of my yaks.  Its more for proving ownership in case of kayak theft.

You can get your kayak and your kids micro chipped at Wally World.  Yep, the all in one family package. Its coast guard approved. By the photo dept. Between Tax Preparation and McDoogles.  YES.

I tried to get those stickers a few years ago with no luck. There is no copyright preventing NCKA from making our own identification stickers.

No law preventing writing it in Sharpie again if/when it starts to fade! Mine has lasted a long long time inside the hatches though.

Sharpie then a quick shot of lacquer or clear marking paint and it will last for ever.
