Before the 1980s, fishing boat wraps were not yet on the scene of Florida watersports. Even as vinyl wraps became popular for cars and other non-mobile uses throughout the 1980s, marine vessels had not yet dared into the territory of vinyl wraps. Users at the time were skeptical of its ability to hold up in the water, and the “experts” weren’t even sure if there would be a future in vinyl wrapping for water at all.
In spite of these early days of doubt, we now see plenty of vinyl wrapped fishing boats, speed boats, and even yachts out on the water. It’s safe to say that those experts were still learning the potential for the trade.
