    Zag, having heard rumours of your alleged tendencies towards the unorthodox may I suggest that you don't name your boat, it will make it harder for the harbour authorities to find you!

    Should you still want well priced pre-cut and pre-spaced lettering then I can highly recommend this seller on E-bay:

    Just be aware, Big Brother can read.

    My mate carved a nameplate for his boat. Three pieces of mahogany cut and set into each other for the illusion of a scroll and the name was traced on from a computer print-out. The letters were then carved, slowly and carefully by hand with a vee shaped gouge.

    Once the carving was as good as it was likely to get, we painted the letters in black gloss and then varnished the whole thing. It still looks great several years later! Point is, it wasn't so hard...

    I'm sure I saw something recently where they were doing this sort of thing with Lasers now...... burning that is.
