Sent boat out for fiberglass repairs & new Awl-Grip paint.Would like to re-stencil hull #'s, does anyone know what size stencil & spacing to use? I remember ID #33482 but forgot to measure them before the boat was sent out.

I'd be glad to help but I don't know how. Should I take a digital pic with a ruler next to it? I'll do it or maybe call Whaler. Let me know if you want me to do it.

Hello Arch,

It would be most helpful if you could take a dig. pic. with a ruler next to it. I just can't remember were these 1", 7/8",or what? I plan on using regular stencils that are close to the original size to paint them back on. Your help is appreciated!

The stenciled numbers and letters are 1/2" tall. A five digit number like yours would occupy c. 2 5/8" of width.

Tom is right on..... I measured my numbers and they are 1/2" high and 3 1/4" wide as I have a six digit number (3B3096) for a 1978 hull... I measured five of these digits and they measured 2 5/8" wide.

Thank-you for the info. Tom W Clark & whalersman. I'll plan on re-stencilling the numbers 1/2" tall & 2-5/8" long for my 5 digit numbers. Once again many thanks to all here at the website & forum.
