Bought these to put the name on my canoe. Nice shiny black, all caps, attractive. Easy to use, they were "stick-easy". Put the dust cover back over the boat, and then it rained. Turns out, THE GLUE IS NOT THE LEAST BIT WATER RESISTANT. They buckled and peeled - even though the plastic letter stayed fine. And we haven't even gotten to the lake yet! Sure are useless for this purpose. The $25. contest got me here. Now you know.
