    That's actually pretty common with the west coast customer boat builders. They spray the graphic design with gelcoat in the mold while building the hull. Somebody else could proably more details on the process, but I know that most west coast custom boats have the graphics sprayed in gelcoat in the mold instead of having them painted on after the hull is ou tof the mold. It's a pretty cool process to watch, becase the guy taping and spraying the gelcoat needs to do everything inside-out, and the deck and bottom are sprayed differently.
