CAN I LAUNCH HERE?

A Prescriptive Sign for Boat Launch Locations

This sign can be placed below the Manitoba "Stop AIS" sign.   We suggest using standard highway grade aluminum sign blanks that are 17.625 by 23.625 inches with rounded corners and vertical punched holes.  Expect to pay about $45 per sign for a plain white background or $60 per sign for a reflective white background.

Use a 10' - 4" x 4" post drilled 3 - 4 feet into the ground.
