You can get painter masking tape as think as ¼ inch. Use that for the
contoured areas and then put something wider overlapping over that. Has always
worked for me when painting decks, etc …

Subject: Re: Stus-List Repainting Waterline Stripe...
I’d spend the few extra bucks and get a good 3M tape. I just did some Awlcraft
painting for gloss and non-skid on my hatches and I used the Awlgrip (and my
painter) recommended 3M 218 Fine Line tape for masking the gloss vs. non-skid
prior to spraying. I’ll be masking off the entire deck sometime this week or
next and I find the 218 properties to be easy to use. Electrical tape is a bit
stretchy and I’m not fond of the glue used.
Don’t know what your setup with the boat in the yard is but a good way to mark
the waterline and boot stripes is with a laser. Boat’s gotta be level
fore-and-aft and side-to-side.

I would check with the manufacturer to see what you can use over AwlGrip.

You are the man...as my next question was how to follow the extreme curvature
under the stern (waterline and curves widens radically to maintain visual width
when hull tucks under).
This is my solution.
