Visitor Toll

Recommended Posts

Morning all, just going to launch my GP14 that I have just acquired. I will be buying a weekly toll as it will probably have to be pulled out again for repairs to leaks. The question is , Where do I put the ticket for the ranger to see, especially with this wet weather ?

Thanks Koolwabbit

Either side of that pointy bow? Getting the things off again is the problem!

 Leave the backing on and Duck tape it to the bow, toll plaque glue is awful to get off

I wouldn't stick it anywhere, just have it with you should you get asked.

Sticky stuff remover and a light plastic pan scourer works great in removing till plaque glue. Thank god we don’t have them anymore. I became quite adept at exactly placing the new one directly over the old one. No need for glue removal ... simples

It’s the same stuff I use to remove luggage stickers from the back of my phone when I travel. I don’t use paper tickets so it makes sense. Also safer than a boarding card.

Having had a nasty experience with a unwarranted penalty notice on a perspex window,  I found WD40 and a plastic debit card was the best thing.

You could also attach it to a small piece of foamboard cut to size then cable tie that to a rail or stanchion. 

I did this and never bothered removing the old plaque from the board I’d just stick the new one over the top of the old one like Malanka! 

I decided on the foamboard after realising how difficult it was to remove them from the hull when I first got the boat.

A rail or a stauntion on a GP 14?, I'd be tempted to stick them on the boom rather than risk ripping paint off.
