I would not recommend this product. Used it to tape off some stripes I was painting. Left a ton of adhesive behind when the tape was removed. Also pulled off the paint underneath in several places.

I use this to redo the boat stripe at the waterline of my Cape Dory Typhoon. It is the best I have found to conform to the compound curvature of the hull. It is, however, a bit pricey.
